Special Class Opportunities


Occasionally, we will offer complimentary classes to local residents. These classes are posted on this page on our website as they become available. We encourage you to check this page often.

Details:
  • Each person may only enroll in one of these classes within a 12 month period.
  • You must be "local." Read below in the Am I Local? section to see if you qualify.
  • Tuition is FREE, but each student will be required to pay a $25 registration fee and any additional materials costs. If there is space available and you choose to stay on campus, regular housing and meals rates apply.
  • These are available on a first-come first-serve basis and may not be used on a class for which you are already registered.
  • If you choose to register, you must do this by phone or in person - no online registrations, please. Call our Registration Staff (828-837-2775 or 800-365-5724) and be sure to mention that you are inquiring about the special complimentary class and the $25 registration fee to the person answering your call.

Glass: Flameworking 101
with instructor Carla Camasso
Also known as lampworking, the art form of flameworking has existed for over 5,000 years. At individual torch workstations, learn basic equipment operation and tool use for safely manipulating borosilicate (hard) glass in the flame. Gain fundamental skills to transform glass rods and tubes into marbles, pendants, sculptures, and more. Artist tips and insights on use of color will be shared. All levels welcome, especially beginners. Note: Additional material fee is estimated from $106-$156.
2 spaces available

Stone, Sculpture, Clay: Beginning Portraits in Clay
with instructor Mike Lalone
Take the first step in sculpting faces in clay, guided hands-on and with excellent reference materials. Place features in proper proportion with a simplified version of Bruno Lucchesi's method using additive and subtractive techniques. The results can be generic, look-alike, or even alien. Explore portraiture in a non-intimidating atmosphere in this class for pure beginners. NOTE: Pieces will not be fired and cannot be shipped - prepare to transport leather-hard.
