WORKSHOPS

Students will attend one workshop for the duration of the program. Please select your First Choice, Second Choice and Third Choice.
Learn from the master himself, Northern Tutchone and Tlingit artist, Eugene Alfred! Coming from Pelly Crossing, Eugene is an established and respected carver with years of experience and a unique and exquisite style. Using an array of over two hundred hand tools, he carves beautiful masks, bowls, rattles, and sculpture panels - but in this workshop, participants will learn his foundations of wood carving and create either a wolf or a crow sculpture to take home!
Meshell Melvin is a fantastic familiar face around these parts and a rockstar in many mediums - we are thrilled to have her expertise in the wondrous world of drawing. She is coming from Whitehorse with pencils, pens, pastels, charcoal, chalk, conté, and much more! This workshop will demystify the process of drawing, introducing participants to the fundamentals through use of contour, gesture, negative and positive space, proportion, line, value, volume, natural perspective, and composition. Throughout the week, students will focus observational drawing; the still life, the self-portrait, and figure drawing - with a variety of media and materials!
Amy Tessaro is originally from Haida Gwaii and was raised in Whitehorse, YT. She is a master of stained-glass creations! Amy learned all her techniques from her late father, Bruce Tessaro, who studied the craft for over thirty years. In this workshop, participants will make beginner and intermediate-level suncatchers and stained-glass windows - expect cutting, tracing, scoring, grinding, and soldering, with a gorgeous finish product ready to glow in the spring sunshine.
