Brandon Lutterman, a prominent Maine artist and teacher at Bowdoin College’s Craft Center, will teach ART 113, 3-D Design at University College during the spring semester, which will start in January. The course will meet Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. beginning Jan. 14.

The university’s 3-D Design course covers the fundamentals, exercises and conceptual problems in space, form, structure and texture as applied to 3-D organization. The course has no prerequisites and meets a performing/studio art credit in university programs. The course also may be taken by non-degree students for personal or professional enrichment.

Lutterman has been an established professional artist since 1999. He received a bachelor of fine arts degree in ceramics from Minnesota State University and a master of fine arts from Kansas State University. Lutterman’s work often is known for carrying an environmental message.

“My work speaks about the beauty of nature and the importance of preserving and nourishing it,” he said.

Registration is open now for this class with no payment due. For more information, contact University College at Rockland at 596-6906 or visit the website at learn.maine.edu/rockland.
