Registration for Artful Aging “Birds in Sculpture” Workshop Currently Open

Registration is now open for the Seeding Artful Aging “Birds in Sculpture” workshop offered through a partnership between Johnson City Public Library and the Department of Art & Design at East Tennessee State University. The workshop is free and open to adults aged 55 and up. No prior experience is required, but a strong commitment to attendance is encouraged. Angelique Lynch, Adjunct Art Instructor at East Tennessee State University, will teach this intensive course with focus on bird anatomy, the principles of aerodynamics, and how to achieve the illusion of movement in figures of birds. Students will learn the importance of assembling strong, meaningful shapes and how eliminating unimportant details can create the bird’s essence.

Classes will be held at the ETSU 3D classroom and will meet twice weekly, on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., from July 11 to Tuesday, August 29, with a final class on Wednesday, August 30. All needed materials will be provided. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants’ works will be shown at Slocumb Gallery from August 28 to September 15. There will be a reception at Slocumb Gallery on September 14 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.; the public is welcome to attend.
