Workshop with  Artist Judith Kruger

 Wofford College, Goodall Environmental Studies Center, Spartanburg, SC  


With Artist- Instructor Judith Kruger

March 19 - 23, 2018


Cullowhee Mountain Arts is delighted to be hosting this explorative workshop at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina where students will learn to  reinterpret nature’s deep imagery and essence while making paint and ink made from nature itself. "Paint, ink and home-made gesso will be made from inorganic and organic sources including pine soot, shells and earth minerals. " The workshop will take place in the The Goodall Environmental Studies Center, a renovated historic building located in the ruins of what had at one time been a textile manufacturing center and village.

We will use the rich natural resources at Goodall Center as source materials and inspiration for the the making of paints, inks and art. What could be a more interesting than to have a workshop like this than a science lab with outdoor gardens, river and waterfall, and an outdoor classroom - in the form of a stone amphitheater, right on the water!
