Sculpture workshop with Thor Myhre

Lightcatcher Art Museum, April 24th 2010, 1:00-4:00 PM
Junk Has Soul- sculpting with the found object.  Students will use common materials and hand tools to create
unique works of art. They will learn innovative ways of integrating and attaching formerly unrelated items, making
new discoveries about themselves and the world around them. Students will learn about great resources for future
projects and walk away with a newfound sense of the beauty in everyday junk. Ages 8 to adult; this class is ideal for
parents and children to create sculptures together! Materials are included in tuition. $60/ $48 for Museum
members. To register contact Elsa Lenz Kothe at eclenzkothe@cob.org or 360 778-8960.  250 Flora Street,

"In such a wasteful culture as ours, Thor Myhre recovers and transforms ‘junk’ into messengers of beauty!  I think
that discovery has wonderful therapeutic possibilities and should strike the heart of young artists."

Robert A. Johnson, world-renowned author of bestsellers He, She, and We

"Our son, Nat, first attended one of Thor's workshops at the 2008 Allied Arts Festival. Using salvaged materials
along with hammers, screwdrivers, and drills was a dream art workshop for a seven year old. We were impressed
how Thor (who obviously enjoys working with kids) was able to act as both creative muse and technical facilitator,
encouraging the kids to envision their finished art and then helping them realize that vision.  That afternoon with
Thor really sparked Nat's interest in art; he went from being hyper-critical if his work didn't look like everyone else's
to trusting his own ideas and execution. Besides introducing our son to 3-dimensional art, Thor helped him to see
art as an enjoyable process.  This past summer we took some friends to the San Juan Islands Sculpture Park.
When we came across one of Thor's sculptures, our son said 'my Thor?' He then proceeded to tell everyone in
detail about creating his sculpture with Thor's help. I can't think of higher praise than for a child to recount a few
hours nine months past.  He was extremely excited about this year's workshop, which he attended full of
enthusiasm in the company of his friend who was with us at the sculpture park."
