SHI to cosponsor art and Tsimshian classes

The Sealaska Heritage Institute is bringing two master artists to Juneau to teach Northwest coast art to inmates at the Lemon Creek Correctional Facility and halfway house. One of them will also teach a free language class.

Washington-based Tsimshian artist David A. Boxley will teach formline design at Gastineau Human Services and Sm’algyax (Tsimshian) mini-immersion classes at the Walter Soboleff Building. The classes at the Gastineau Human Services are scheduled Nov. 2 and 4-6. The Tsmishian classes at the Living History Center in the Walter Soboleff Building are scheduled 3 p.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1; also, 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 2-4 and are open to all aspiring language students.

Haines-based Tlingit artist Wayne Price will teach carving to inmates at Lemon Creek Correctional Facility. The classes are scheduled Nov. 2-6.

SHI is co-sponsoring the evening language classes, which were organized by Nancy Barnes. Haayk Foundation is also a sponsor.
