Upcoming Workshops

Once Fired: The Figure in the Landscape
A Four-Day Workshop with Allison Newsome
October 13 - 16, 2011

Allison Newsome Workshop

Working from the landscape and the figure: clay sketching outside in the landscape, and studying the figure model in the studio, students will create small sculptures and reliefs using hollow-form and slab construction techniques. Students will learn about creating larger works in several components, and creating symbolic figures in a personal landscape. They will learn the art of "Once Fired" with the application of stains, slips, and glazes, at all stages of the art making process. Students will find that their work will take on new textures, forms, and dimensions as they are taught to approach clay with a new eye.

All levels are welcome to participate, from beginners through advanced.

Cost: $375. includes materials and lunch.  

 

The Sacred Vessel
A Three-Day Workshop with Richard Flores
October 21 - 23, 2011
