Special Class Opportunities


Occasionally, we will offer complimentary classes to local residents. These classes are posted on this page 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 calendar year.
  • 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.


March 29-April 4
Bird Carving: Eastern Bluebird
Instructor-Riley Monroe
1 space available

Once in decline, Eastern Bluebird populations have rebounded thanks to conservation efforts. A member of the thrush family, it is about 7" high with rounded head, large eyes, and short tail, and the male is known for its vivid blue feathers. Using reference photos and measurements from scaled sketches, carve a likeness of this beautiful bird in tupelo wood with power-carving tools. Improve your skills in carving, burning & texturing feathers, and painting with acrylics in the process. Power-carving experience is essential, and you are asked to bring your tools.
