GREETINGS

The Winston-Salem Youth Chorus

It all begins with a love of singing!

Thank you for taking the time to review our winter catalog. I think that you will find exceptional offerings in all disciplines. Because our directors are dedicated to their craft, I have asked them to use this space to inform our community about their programming and the communities within. Jessica Tefft came on board as Digital Arts Director about a year ago, after serving on our Board of Directors. In the short time that she has been on staff at Sawtooth, she has revamped our Digital Arts department, adding new classes and technology. Jessie also served as Interim Photography Director, later taking on both roles. Jessie’s background as a photojournalist brings a new dimension to her work as an artist and artistic director. We are fortunate to have her expertise and enthusiasm at Sawtooth. http://www.jessicatefft.com/

Amy Jordan, Executive Director 7/30/2019 4:10:14 PM

I’m constantly amazed at the ways technology has created innovation and experimentation in art-making forms and processes. As a program director at Sawtooth, my fascination with new technology has motivated me to bring these new mediums through our doors.

You put the “public” in public radio. Thanks for listening to 88.5 WFDD.

Thanks to the time and effort of an incredibly dedicated staff we are offering classes in Virtual Reality Illustration for the first time this winter. We’ll provide students with Oculus Quest headsets and Google Tilt Brush so they can learn to create their own 3D art. It used to be that walking through a painting was something for a Sci-Fi movie. Now you can walk through your own in one of our classrooms. The great thing about this new technology is that it is intuitive and easy to learn. And these aren’t the only new classes in the digital arts department. We acquired six new Huion GT 190 drawing tablets. This has opened up vast possibilities. We now have classes in digital comics, illustrations and animation. Along with the new technology came talented instructors excited to teach these skills to the community. Analog and digital can complement one another when you’re creating art. One such opportunity is our class in Circuitry and Sewing. Students learn simple coding of a circuit, then sew it with conductive thread into interactive wearables. We also have another class where we design fabric using Adobe Photoshop and make a unique textile design. We then print the digital designs and sew a functional wearable art piece. All of this is possible because everyday people support Sawtooth through volunteering, taking classes, teaching and gifts. We truly are a community school.

VISITING ARTIST Christopher Darway 5135. Steam Casting in the 21st Century

Low tech in execution but sophisticated in theory steam casting is a fun way to do lost wax casting without much equipment. There are several methods to cast metal. Gravity works if metal mass is heavy enough. Centrifugal casting is used for small amounts of metal. Vacuum casting pulls the molten metal into the mold. Pressure casting includes both compressed air or steam to push the metal into the mold. The flask is both mold, melting crucible and steam generator. To make this work the sprue cannot be larger than 14g or else molten metal can drip into the mold. Once the metal is melted in the “button/crucible ” area of the flask a jar cap with wetted paper attached to a wooden handle is pressed against the hot mold and melted metal. The heat of the mold and melted metal produces steam which forces the metal into the mold. That’s it! Students will carve hard wax for rings and we’ll make hot glue gun rings. Instructor Christopher Darway Location: Metals Studio fee $240 (members $216) Saturday and Sunday, 6/27 & 6/28, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm Christopher Darway has been working in metals for over 40 years as a designer, teacher and artisan.

Over the years he has sold and exhibited work through galleries, shops and craft shows including ACC and Smithsonian Craft Shows. He is a two-time recipient of the New Jersey State Council of the Arts Award. Work has been exhibited in Germany, Japan (International Pearl Design Contest, prize winner) and England. He has taught at the University of the Arts, University of Delaware, and Montclair State University, NJ. He’s been a senior PMC instructor for Rio Grande, former president of the Pennsylvania Society of Goldsmiths, and writer at Art Jewelry Magazine. He currently teaches at the Wayne Art Center, Wayne, PA and the University of the Arts, Continuing Studies Program, Philadelphia, PA.

VISITING ARTIST LAURIE SCHORR NEW! 6961. Holga and Lomography Workshop: The Poetry of Imperfection Visiting Artist Laurie Schorr is the Director of Education at the Light Factory in Charlotte. She is coming to Sawtooth for two Saturdays to share the creative freedom in making images with Holga and Lomo cameras. These low-tech plastic cameras (with plastic lenses!) are known for their dreamy, nostalgic imagery and the element of surprise in each frame due to lack of total technical control! Each camera has its own imperfections and sculpts light differently. We will be using medium format film for the Holgas and 35mm film for the lomo cameras. With the use of B&W film, we can layer frames in camera, process the film ourselves, and print from our negatives. Negatives can also be scanned and processed digitally. Day one will be an introduction to Holga and Lomography, a photo walk, and processing negatives. Day two we will continue to process negatives, print in the darkroom and scan our negatives. No prior experience is necessary! Several spare cameras will be provided (age teen - adult) Instructor Laurie Schorr Location: Darkroom fee $150 (member $135) Saturday, 2/22, and Saturday, 2/29, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
