Cultural Workshops with Eric Smith

The ARTesian Gallery and Studios in Sulphur, Oklahoma offers art classes for all levels, from beginning artists to professional artists. Some of the art classes include “make and take” classes and specifically designed classes for visitors to the area. 

The ARTesian Gallery and Studios will be hosting Cultural Workshops with Eric Smith.

James Eric Smith is a world renowned Chickasaw artist, bowyer, archery historian, author and teacher.  He teaches the art of making traditional bows and arrows used by the plains Indians.  

As an instructor at Riverside Indian School in Anadarko, Eric taught the only class of bow making and archery in the history of a school operating under the direction of the Bureau of Indian Education.  In addition to teaching at Riverside, he has taught many Native American youths from reservations across the United States.

In December 2015, Eric’s bows and arrows were featured in an Academy Award winning film “The Revenant”.  After the completion of the Revenant, HBO requested numerous bows and arrows for a mini-series titled “Lewis and Clark”.  Eric has recently completed a project for a 10 part mini-series, “See”, which stars Jason Mamoa. Eric's work can be see around the world. 

Each class is $100 per person. Class sizes are extremely small, approximately 8 people and fill up very quickly. This month's class will feature: Moccasin Making.
