ZOOMORPHIC

Workshop with Allison Newsome

Saturday & Sunday, October 18 & 19, 2014
  


Ancient Lion-Headed Figurine from Stadel Cave in Southwest Germany

 

We are pleased to announce ZOOMORPHIC, a two-day workshop with Allison Newsome. Participants will be introduced to Newsome’s “once-fired” technique, creating sculptures in clay and utilizing Mason Stains. There will be a study of historic zoomorphic sculptures from diverse cultures in all media, from the first zoomorphic sculpture, a Paleolithic lion headed figure found in a cave in Germany, through the Sphinx to contemporary approaches. The workshop will also explore how zoomorphic forms can be incorporated into architectural projects.

Cost: $200. Includes a communal vegetarian lunch and all materials. Contact the Center to register.
