$55 WAM members; $70 Non-Members

Steve Cozart, instructor at Weaver Academy and an artist featured in the Art on Paper exhibition, will lead this workshop. Teachers will investigate ways to develop a consistent art practice while maintaining the busy schedule of an art instructor. Join us for two days packed with exercises, new media, and new techniques. 

Here’s what to bring: 

• 5 objects (things, photos, and texts) that are personally meaningful 

• a brief written explanation of why you chose these 5 objects

• a sketchbook or ½” 3-ring binder

• pencils and pens of your choosing, including charcoal pencils of varying value.

Begin at WAM for inspiration and  warm-up exercises before moving into the Printmaking Studio in Gatewood Art Building. Bring a bag lunch so that we can eat together during our break. Refrigerator and microwave are available at the museum. A certificate of participation will be provided and can be used for CEU credit with the prior approval of your school system.

Limited to 15 teachers. Contact Terri Dowell-Dennis at or 336-256-1449. Pre-registration is required.

Thanks to generous support from the Charlotte W. Toler Art Education Endowment WAM is able to keep workshop costs at a nominal rate.
