From Beaufort County Community College

For someone starting their education and thinking about a career in art or are retired and looking for a new creative outlet or a second career in the arts, the new studio arts class, Two Dimension Design, at Beaufort County Community College may be the first step.

Taught by veteran artist Heea Crownfield, the course features hands-on art projects such as an accordion book, a hand-painted t-shirt and a hybrid self-portrait combining traditional and digital media.

Students will learn the elements and principles of design as they are applied to two-dimensional art and to the theories of color mixing and interaction. They will make a color-wheel and make a painting with color acrylic.

The class will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:50 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday beginning Wednesday, Jan. 8, and ending Wednesday, May 14.

Tuition and student fees for the 3-credit-hour course are $220.50 for in-state residents. There are no-prerequisites for the course and students need not have any previous design or art experience.

Students may enroll in the course by first completing an online application for admission to BCCC. Those currently enrolled at BCCC who would like to add this course to their schedule should consult their advisors. Registration for the class will be from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 7, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 8.

Crownfield, a resident of Washington, has been working in mixed-media sculpture for over 20 years. She earned a bachelor’s degree in art and religious studies from Guilford College in Greensboro and a master’s degree in fine art with a concentration in sculpture from Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.

She has exhibited her sculpture throughout North Carolina including galleries like the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Greenhill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem and the Fayetteville Museum of Art in Fayetteville.

Additionally, Crownfield’s work has been shown in exhibits throughout the southeast and has been recognized by Sculpture Magazine, a publication of the International Sculpture Center.

Her work, “Core,” was recently chosen to be on display at the Caswell Building, home of the North Carolina Community College System office.
