The Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance has announced that space at the Downtown Gallery is available for any artists or artisans who wish to teach others about their specialties.
These instructors must be members of the gallery.
Those wishing to set up classes should contact Chattie Van Wert, director, at 593-9093 or at email@example.com for details or contact Jill Cunningham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stan Burdick, an artist now exhibiting in the gallery, will kick off this new venture with a series of three drawing classes to be held on Nov. 3, 10 and 17 at 10 a.m. The classes are aimed at students of middle school age and older. Price will be $15 a lesson or $40 for the series of three. To register call Burdick at 585-7015.
Burdick has been drawing for most of his life, having been published in Boy’s Life at a young age. His cartoons have appeared in many local papers and magazines since his retirement here almost 20 years ago. He presently draws for the Hague Chronicle and the Stamp Insider magazine, as well as on commission when a special picture is ordered. He taught classes at SUNY Adirondack’s summer enrichment programs and at the Ticonderoga Cartoon Museum.
