Decoy carving classes online
Since 1999, Raleigh artist Vic Kirkman has been teaching wildfowl carving from his studio and online from his website, wildfowlart.com. Kirkman, who has won numerous top awards in Southeast carving competitions, is offering a new opportunity to learn the art of decoy carving live, in real time, with him. The virtual courses are for beginners to advanced carvers, and his students learn techniques to create a beautiful wildfowl carving. Kirkman’s classes are complemented by contributions from some of his advanced students and talented associates. You can register for his courses on the website below. The website also features a store which sells woodworking tools and products, and Kirkman flags supplies you would need for his courses. The Bird Carvers Online Community forum and the Youth Carvers of America sponsorship program, along with helpful articles and diagrams, are also integrated into the website.
