Ceramics Workshop: Beyond Standard Methods 

Thursdays, Oct 31 – Dec 19  2019

This workshop is for students who have some basic ceramics experience and is an opportunity to further explore a wide variety of techniques in creating ceramic work.

The emphasis of the workshop is to learn more about sculptural language and form and apply it in your own work. It will dive into technical and artistic issues of relief sculpture, free standing sculpture, mixed media, monumental- and personal sculpture and will explore representational, abstract and conceptual forms of expressions.
