These art-making workshops are led by Appalachian State University student instructors and are open to all skill levels. All supplies are provided.

Open Studio will be a time to create and play with art making materials in a casual and welcoming setting. Explore the world of texture, color and design. Play with paint, collage, pastels, pen and ink with facilitators who will inspire and offer demonstrations and prompts for creative art making.

Miranda Lowery is currently a senior at Appalachian State University pursuing a BS in Anthropology. She is interested in the intersections of psychology and art, with a particular focus on expression and how art can transform one’s lived experience. Miranda believes that everyone can be empowered through art and hopes to cultivate a safe, creative space for individuals while at Turchin Center.

Rae Feutz is a senior BFA student with a concentration in ceramics at Appalachian State University. Growing up in a strange place known as suburban Raleigh, she was disconnected from nature and the diverse world we live in. When there was nowhere to go around her, she retreated inward to the world of emotion and imagination that she expressed through artmaking. After taking her first ceramic course in the fall of 2022, she instantly felt connected to the medium. In contrast to her isolated upbringing, Rae finds working with clay to be not only personally therapeutic but collectively healing as the medium offers a supportive community of care and connectivity. In 2022, Rae was awarded “Best in Show” at Appalachian State’s juried Student Art and Design exhibition for her ceramic piece entitled “Squish Baby.” She is currently deepening her knowledge and skill set of the ceramic medium, as well as other interdisciplinary artistic processes, toward her goal of becoming a professional studio artist.
