Spotlight on New February Instructors
Meet Eric Marczak
Eric is a new instructor at AFS this year! He will be teaching how to construct a Native American Courting Flute in February and again in October.
Eric is a Vietnam veteran and has been working with wood for over 45 years. His focus is on musical instruments such as drums, shakers, classical guitars, and Native American style flutes. Eric has taught many classes and workshops for the Northeastern Woodworkers Association, The Arts Center in Troy, NY and The Woodcraft store in Latham, NY. Eric’s work has been on display at The New York State Museum, Cooperstown Gallery, and the American School of Japanese Arts in California. He is an active member of the International Native American Flute Association and the Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans.
Local Citizen Scholarship Program
AFS is pleased to offer our Local Citizen Scholarship Program. The scholarship program will provide a $10 Tuition Certificate to all residents in the Hadley-Luzerne School District (proof of Driver’s License or Voter Registration Card is required). One Tuition Certificate per resident will be issued valid for any AFS class. To receive your Local Citizen Scholarship Coupon, visit the school at 51 Main Street in Lake Luzerne from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Meet Kathryn Greenwold
Also new to AFS, Kathryn is a fiber arts instructor and will offer four classes in 2013, beginning with "Burgoyne Surrounded" Quilt Block in February. Kathryn began quilting as a young woman with her grandmother in Nebraska. Kathryn has been teaching for 25 years and is an American Quilt Society-trained quilt appraiser with over 20 years of experience with both antique and modern quilts. She is a member of the American Quilt Society, National Quilt Association, and the American Quilt Study Group, as well as local quilt study and art quilt groups and has taught at the NQA Convention. Kathryn loves teaching: "Seeing 'the light bulb go on' for someone who is struggling to achieve an artistic idea is what keeps me teaching. In addition, I have never taught a class where I didn't learn something from my students. I have grown as an artist and as a human being through my teaching."
