Program Description
I’ll start each workshop with a slide show of my personal journey into the arts. This will start from my entrance into the arts back in high school where I was guided away from the arts by guidance counselors and administration. I’ve found this to be helpful to mention as many students can relate to this. My entrance into the arts started in ceramics and has led me to Mould Making, Metal Casting and Fiber. I’ll discuss how perseverance, determination, hard work and elbow grease has landed me scholarships, grants, shows and teaching opportunities that enable me to travel to craft schools and residencies to continue making work. I’ll show the evolution of my work and include works in process from different studios throughout the years. This introduction will last about 30 minutes concluding with 15 minutes of questions. I’ll continue with about 20 minutes of demonstrations and disperse materials for hands-on building. At this point I'll make my rounds to meet with each student and troubleshoot their project ideas and the best way to construct them. I’ll call the class over to discuss which method of building would be best depending on the desired outcome as there is no one way to make something. First steps into the world of Abstract art by warping reality one object at a time. Students are prompted to give humanistic features/characteristics to inanimate objects to create something that's never existed before. Clay can be provided for an additional fee: 150$ will provide us with 200 pounds of clay.
