Friday, March 27, 6pm, Chalmers Conference Room in Niswonger Commons on Tusculum College campus:

“Wingin’ It Works- The Melding of Art and Science into a Career.” Join artist, designer and naturalist David Williams for a descriptive tale of how to make work fun. In 1996, David established ”Wingin’ It Works,” combining two and three dimensional design. With a strong appreciation for the natural world, he decided to put that enthusiasm to work through full time graphic/exhibit design, mural painting, and scientific illustration.  His work can be seen at many prestigious museums, science centers and other facilities. http://www.winginitworks.com/index.html

Saturday, March 28, Wingin’ It Workshop, meet at the Doak House Museum at 10 am

Workshop participants will accompany artist & naturalist David Williams on a hike to Margarette Falls. Along the way, David will explain the process of keeping a field journal, making color studies, a naturalist’s notebook and how he finds inspiration in the natural world. After the hike, the group will meet at the Doak House for further instruction on the process of keeping a field journal as the launching point for inspiration. Reservations are required as space is limited. To participate in the workshop, attendees must be able to make the hike to the falls, classified as an easy to moderate trail. Contact Leah Walker at lwalker@tusculum.edu or 423-636-8554 to make a reservation.

Workshop and artist’s talk are made possible in part by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Arts Builds Communities grant program. The grant is administered by the Johnson City Area Arts Council. THANK YOU TN Arts and JCAAC!
