UAS to offer Northwest Coast Arts, Language classes
The University of Alaska Southeast is offering Tlingit language and Northwest Coast Arts classes this fall.
Language classes include Tlingit at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels, as well as beginning Haida. Distance options are available for language classes.
Alaska Native languages and studies at UAS examines three primary components of modern and historical Alaska Native life: language, art and society. Taught by Alaska Native professors, language study courses focus on language revitalization through learning, documentation and community activities.
Northwest Coast arts classes in design and carving will be offered on the Juneau Campus, taught by master carver Wayne Price. UAS courses in art include Northwest Coast formline design, carving, weaving and textiles.
For Northwest Coast Arts classes, SHI and UAS offer the “Sharing our Box of Treasures Scholarship” and applications are due as soon as possible.
The scholarships are intended to provide scholarships to Alaska Native students enrolling in the NWC art courses, but anyone may apply. The scholarship is meant to partially or fully cover tuition, course fees and other fees directly connected to the study of NWC Arts at the UAS Juneau Campus. Provided by SHI and UAS, the scholarship is funded by the US Department of Education ANEP Grant. The application can be found at https://tinyurl.com/y39b882g.
