About the Instructor:
DAVID KREIDER is a mixed media artist working in the rare artforms of pyrography and pyrogravure coloree. He is known for his exquisite intercultural character studies, portraits, wildlife, and vibrant impressionistic landscapes incorporating the rich visual textures of his "canvases" on wood.
David has been showing and selling his award-winning art in over 400 juried art shows, street fairs, galleries, and international and ethnic festivals for over 32 years. More recently, by request, he has taken to teaching this unusual art to the delight of pyrography enthusiasts who have been captivated by his talent and work at Schools of Craft and Woodworking that often bring together some of the premier artists and craftsmen in their fields. He has been gratified to be honored by his students as a gifted and engaging teacher whose style seems to connect and bring out the collective best and often undiscovered talents of his students.
Having grown up in the conflicted world of the Middle East, in Israel-Palestine, and visited and taught in Egypt, Iraq and Kurdistan, regions that span the cultures and faith traditions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and others in a multiplicity of cultural expressions, David's work and studies have taken him into the arts of intercultural diplomacy, conflict transformation, trauma healing, interfaith engagement, and peacebuilding as well. Expressions of his interests in peace pervade his art and student-centered teaching in a way that not only evokes their best in technical skills but draws from and nurtures their heart and soul as well.
