Kathy Wilcox will be teaching a Enamel Surface Design course at Arrowmont June 4-10, 2017.

Enameling offers unlimited opportunities to develop rich surfaces with images, patterns, textures and color. The focus will be on enamel techniques that are inspired by drawing, painting, and print making.

You will explore a variety of approaches including screen printing, sgraffito tricks, wet flow effects, underglaze and overglaze drawings, adhesive methods, and firescale. Special surface effects of lusters, mica inks and pens, appliqué with glass beads & shards, and final textured surfaces will also be explored.

This class is packed with lots of exciting techniques that can be applied to jewelry or wall pieces. Each person will have personal attention as you work at your own pace. All levels, but basic enameling knowledge helpful.

A listing of all courses is available on this website and you may register for any course through her contact page.

Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts is a national art education center. The School offers weekend, one- and two-week workshops for the beginner to advanced artist, taught by national and international practicing studio artists and university faculty. Students work and learn in professionally equipped studios on a 14-acre residential campus in Gatlinburg, TN.

Arrowmont Parkway Entrance

Most people come to Arrowmont to be immersed in art and away from the pressures and responsibilities of daily life. Housing, meals, evening programs, and almost 24-hour studio access provide everything you will need to be stimulated and inspired. Students may choose never to leave campus during their workshop session. However, if you want to get a drink, shop, or sightsee, Gatlinburg is just down the driveway.

Please go to the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts website for more information. The school has a rich heritage in the folk arts.
