My name is Jamie, I grew up in a very artistic family and have a deep passion for the arts. My goal in life is to build an art school where we can all learn and teach each other life changing skills and knowlege. Im in the Asheville area and trying to put together 3 workshops to start the school off. One Blacksmith shop, one mixed metals shop for silversmithing, copper working, tin smithing and also stained glass. Another shop will be all aspects of woodworking. It's a big project so it will have to start small and slowly build up. I want this school to be as green as possible so the mixed metals shop will be make out of recycled shipping containers. we will use solar energy, composting toilets, etc. The pottery studio will be a cob workshop. For the woodworking shop we will use any wood we cut down to build these studios. I need to raise funds for these shipping containers, tools and materials to kick off this art school. Any help at all will be so greatly appretiated. I hope to educate and grow with our amazing community here in North Carolina. Thank you so much! I do have some perks...To everyone who donates, big or small gets to have a plaque with their name on it. All of the plaques will be put up on a designated wall at the school for all who hepled to make it happen. Anyone who donates $100.00 will get a private, one day (4 hour) lesson in medium of choice: Blacksmithing, Silversmithing, Tin Smithing or Stained Glass. All who can donate $500.00 will receive a free, one week class at the school any time after it opens. This will not expire. Thanks again and please share this with everyone you know.
