Walter McConnell presents Big Clay: Raw
July 6 - 17, 2015
In the expanded field of contemporary sculpture where material options are completely open, unfired clay, moist and visceral or dry as a bone holds fantastic, untapped expressive potential. This workshop is an opportunity to explore the possibilities, to experiment widely and build large-scale, raw clay sculpture and installation that embraces impermanence as the end point.
Jason Green presents The Teacher’s Studio
July 6 - 10, 2015
This one-week workshop is designed to give teachers the time and space to explore and experiment with clay. Participants will have the opportunity to learn new processes while also concentrating on their own studio practice. Demonstrations will encompass a range of techniques, tools, and processes that can be applied to thrown, hand built, and molded forms. Studio conversations will focus on how artists arrive at from and surface using experimental methods. Ideas about developing projects, solving technical problems, and teaching art will be shared.
