I have been teaching at Folk School for over 20 years and it’s a marvelous experience with a beautiful campus, even in winter. Located in Brasstown, NC just north of the Georgia border in western corner of the mountain region, the valley is full of fantastic views with several historic buildings. Known as a heritage craft and regional music school, and founded on Danish rural education principles, it’s a really vital and inspiring community. This is an intensive, with lots of time in their functional and comfortable painting studio. There are still spaces available and I’d love to work with you to show you how to work big!
