Jim Carpenter - Painting Seminar

We are pleased to have, as one of our seminar speakers this year, Jim Carpenter. His seminar on painting will be at 11:00, Saturday February 17, 2018. The following is from Journal Now.

"Jim Carpenter, a bird carver, finds inspiration everywhere.
"He carves life-like sculptures that show birds in their natural habitat. ... He paints all his sculptures with acrylics or oils.
“ 'I usually decide on the bird first, then how it will be mounted, including the habitat, and then make the habitat out of whatever it takes to create the habitat I am envisioning,'
“...'My theory is that a great carving done with a so-so paint job is just a so-so piece. ...'”

Ron Dowdy Painting Seminar

We are pleased to have, as one of our seminar speakers this year, Ron Dowdy. His seminar on painting will be at 2:00, Saturday February 17, 2018. The following is from Caricature Carvers of America.

"Woodworking has been a life long vocation and avocation...
"While I have been fortunate enough to validate my progress by winning some top awards, the journey is the ultimate reward: induction into the CCA; making new friends who creatively express themselves through their art; sharing concepts through teaching and seeing people’s approval through their smiles and chuckles.”

Bob Stadtlander Relief Carving Seminar

We are pleased to have, as one of our seminar speakers this year, Bob Stadtlander. His seminar on relief carving will be at 10:00, Sunday February 18, 2018. The following is from Trib Total Media.

"Bob Stadtlander, who gave a talk at the last Chisels and Chips gathering on June 9, picked up carving as a diversion after graduating from college more than 25 years ago...
"“It ended up being five years” Stadtlander said.
"The northeastern Ohio resident teaches woodcarving classes, traveling as far as Nebraska, and his works have appeared in juried shows."

Dylan Goodson Carving a Face Seminar

We are pleased to have, as one of our seminar speakers this year, Dylan Goodson. His seminar on carving a face will be at 11:00, Sunday February 18, 2018. The following is from his website.

"Turning a piece of wood into something that brings joy and wonder to others is something that gives me a great sense of enjoyment and accomplishment. The world is full of inspiration, and ideas come in all shapes and forms…whether it’s something I see, or a conversation with a friend, I try to incorporate it all into my work.
