Ketchikan Museums offers spring break classes

Kethcikans Museums Totem Heritage Center offers Spring Break Youth Classes March 13-17, open to ages 10-18.

From 8 a.m.-12 p.m., Holly Churchill will teach Cedar Bark Weaving. Students will learn the fundamentals of weaving or refine their skills as they create their own woven piece. Students will learn weaving techniques hands-on and will gain knowledge of traditional Native culture. Projects will be designed to fit the age, skill level, and interest of each participant.

From 1-5 p.m., Tlingit artist Kenneth White will teach Northwest Coast Design. To learn the building blocks of formline design, traditional color, and get an introduction to crest figures, students will create totemic story art pieces and complete their own regalia design project in felt.

Each class costs $125, materials included. Register at the Totem Heritage Center at 601 Deermount, call 225-5900 or email StacyW@ktn-ak.us. Scholarships are available; call for a scholarship application. For more information on Native Arts Studies Program classes and instructors, visit: ketchikanmuseums.org.
