Teaching Week, Part 2: ECU Metals Symposium

I will be teaching two back-to-back workshops at the 2012 ECU Metals Symposium Material Topics. This year's symposium, "Merging Methods," begins Friday evening, January 13 at 6pm with an exhibition opening and reception. Then it continues for the next two days with lectures, panel discussions, and workshops by the following artists: 

Renee Zettle-Sterling
Jean Campbell
Angela Bubash
Masako Onodera
David Huang
Marlene True

Andrea Kennington and Les Bryant
Lisa Clague

My workshop takes place on Sunday, January 15 from 10am-12:30pm and then again from 1:30-4pm. Here's the class description:

“Every artist has their own way of generating ideas and making work. In this workshop students will be introduced to a new method of idea generation/making: sketching 3-dimensionally with common materials. Through hands-on exploration students will be able to consider their own individual artistic process as they create a unique piece of jewelry or an object.”

I went to the symposium last year and was impressed with the quality of the programming. The speakers and workshop presenters were wonderful and there was lots of time to visit with other attendees. I wrote a series of posts then titled, "Now THAT was good!", if you are interested in seeing what happened last year.
