3 Reasons I love Daffodils
1. Yellow makes me happy
2. Daffodils multiply well
3. Rodents usually avoid eating the bulbs
Can you tell I'm enjoying growing my own daffodils. Did you know that historically you can identify where an old home stead was by the random growth of daffodils in the woods. The next time you spy daffodils on a hike in the wood go inspect to see if an old home foundation is there.
Lisa York Art's Ceramic + Wood piece "Arches" will be a part of the 2020 Arrowmont Instructor Exhibition.
Every year Arrowmont School of Art's and Crafts Hosts an art exhibition for all faculty teaching a workshop that year. I am teaching a class on "Organic Wood Carving." During this workshop students will learn how to combine multiple pieces of wood and carve an organic shaped sculpture that holds an object. The class will focus on idea development on paper and creating an actual three-dimensional sculpture. You will gain the needed knowledge to do basic additive techniques of combining multiple pieces of wood, and subtractive methods of carving rounded shapes using a variety of hand and power tools. Prior experience using power tools is beneficial, however the class is open to all skill levels.
Stay tuned as Arrowmont will be hosting the art exhibition live online soon.
