New Roster Artist: Christopher Amend

Christopher Amend, Gillette, visual artist

Now a self-employed artist, Chris (pictured at right) taught art for thirty-two years at the elementary, high school and college levels. His strong belief that material and technique should serve idea rather than the other way around has led him to hold numerous workshops on that topic. He has worked on several projects with Advocacy for Visual Arts (AVA) in Gillette, including adult classes in life drawing, beginning drawing, and archival matting techniques. He has also served as a guest artist for the “Arts and Leadership” summer youth program at AVA, and has conducted weekly life drawing sessions there since 2003.
