Description

Clay is such a wonderful medium for expression and has been the material of choice for both beginners and master artists for millennia.  This class will introduce you to several handbuilding techniques of making and finishing, while exploring ways to identify and utilize inspirations from the world around you.  What is it about that leaf that you really find beautiful? Why does that image grab your attention in such a way? How can you bring those elements into your work? Weekly demonstrations and many resources and discussions will be part of the virtual experience. Bring your ideas! Zoom classes will be augmented by recorded demonstrations and other resource materials. An initial bag of clay will be provided at pick up, as well as some slips.
