“Last year I was the recipient of a scholarship to a bookmaking workshop presented by Cullowhee Mountain Arts.
It was the most enriching experience for me as an artist that I have ever had the opportunity to participate in.
I was able to grow in my personal expression through book arts under the direction of an internationally recognized book artist.
Having a whole week to devote to creating art was a dream come true! I have used the skills and ideas with my high school art students
and it has enabled me to use a new art form with them. I highly recommend this wonderful opportunity for teachers.”
Gail Woody (teacher of the year for Smokey Mountain High School)
