Clay - Surface Techniques in Clay

$177

with Kara Bledsoe

Calendar Feb 28, 2024 at 10:30 am, runs for 8 weeks

7th - Adult

This technical class is all about experimenting with different surface techniques to use on clay and pottery. We will use the extruder and slab roller to create practice pieces to explore techniques such as scraffito, positive and negative stencils, carved and imprinted texture, wax and tape resist, and many more. We will also cover how to do shrinkage and absorption test and kiln basics. To finish up this class each participant is encouraged to apply the knowledge gained from the various practice exercises in a final decorative or functional work of their choice. Even though this is class based on technique, no prior clay experience is required.

10:30 am - 12:30 pm - Wednesdays, February 28, March 6, 13, 20, April 3, 10, 17, May 1. No class March 27 or April 24.

Mixed Media Collage

$118

with Taylor Norris

Calendar Mar 2, 2024 at 11 am, runs for 4 weeks

Grade 9- Adult

Explore the possibilities that arise when making art from non-traditional materials, and learn to masterfully blend different mediums together to form a unified artwork.  We will consider how collage and assemblage art is "built" like a sculpture on a 2D surface, and a sense of play and experimentation will be encouraged.  There will be new options to work from each week, including paper/found images, cardboard, fabric, duct tape, glitter, and more!  Subject matter will range from the abstract to the representational.  The history of collage as a medium will be discussed, and why it is relevant today.  All skill levels welcome!

11:00 - 1:00 pm, Saturdays, March 2, 9, 16, 23.
