Lance Twitchell conducts a formline design workshop at the Living History Center in the Walter Soboleff Building on Tuesday, June 16.

The free workshop was organized through Sealaska Heritage Institute's Jinéit Art Academy as part of a series of regional programs designed to help artists at all levels learn and enhance their formline, a term that describes the complex designs that make up the underlying components of Northwest Coast art. The workshops, offered in 10 communities throughout the month of June, are also designed to increase the number of Native artists and art instructors qualified to teach Northwest Coast art in public schools.

The June 16-17 workshops will be offered again in Juneau on Saturday, June 20, in a one-day program that runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Living History Center of the Soboleff building. (This workshop is currently full, but there is a wait list.) In Ketchikan, a two-day workshop will be offered from 5:30-8:30 p.m. June 22 and 23 at the Tribal Youth Center, 615 Stedman St., led by master carver Nathan Jackson. In Yakutat, a two-part workshop is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. on June 22 and 1-4 p.m. on June 23 at the Yakutat Tlingit Tribe Culture Camp at Situk River led by Lance Twitchell.
