Art Classes - Ages 12 and Up
Amy Wetmore grew up on Signal Mountain. She took her first kudzu basket weaving class from Bill Haley at the Chattanooga Nature Center in 1990. With an abundant supply of kudzu vines in her backyard Amy had plenty of free materials to practice her new skill. Coming from a family of artists Amy grew up learning many different forms of artistic expression but kudzu basket weaving especially captured her attention because it is natural, readily available, and utilitarian. Amy enjoys sharing her love of taking the underappreciated vines and creating beautiful works of art.

Classes will focus on developing Classical style drawing skills from still lifes. We will also spend some time learning about different styles of art through history comparing how different artists portrayed subjects, especially comparing how they drew and painted eyes.
