LINCOLNTON—Local artists are soon to be teaching at an artists’ colony nestled in the mountains.

According to Katie Henderson Selph of Lincolnton, potters, jewellery-makers and other artists will come together to teach during the “Try It On” classes at Wildacres in Little Switzerland, April 22-26. A noted local artist, Selph said Wednesday that the classes would bring together art-lovers and professionals.

She explained that Wildacres is an artists’ retreat centre founded 67 years ago. This is Wildacres’ second year for the “Try it On” programme that brings people who want to explore the creative arts together with experienced artists and professionals. Classes are open to adults of any skill level, and they include photography, music, sculpture, pottery, jewellery, painting, printmaking, collage and poetry. There will also be optional hikes around the scenic mountaintop, tours of area attractions and evening entertainment.

Orientation starts April 22 at 3:30 p.m., and the session ends after breakfast April 26.

“We have gathered great teachers for a variety of programmes and classes,” said Selph, “where you’ll have the opportunity to try something new.”

She noted that advance registration is required. On-site lodging for four nights and 11 family-style meals are included in the $310 cost. 

And Selph continued she and Lincolnton potter Gary Lee have been invited to teach in this year’s programme. Lee taught last year in the program at Wildacres. He is the owner of Rising Sun Pottery in downtown Lincolnton. During the “Try It On” session, he’ll be teaching how to make clay cylinders—the basis for mugs and soup bowls.

A potter for nearly a quarter-century, Lee has been teaching for 17 years. He specialises in wood-fired vases and pitchers.

Selph said she’ll be teaching a class in art jewellery. A professional designer with over 25 years of teaching experience, she sells jewellery under the brand names “Stella” and “CluckWorks.”
