I love to teach, it’s really fundamental to my identity as an artist since I learned to do both things at pretty much the same time. With the pressure of grad school and moving my life and studio around significantly I’ve not taught a good community class in years. We kept putting it off until we were “less busy” and a class never came together.
The time has finally arrived! We’ve been cleaning and planning for a while now and have set a date.
Saturday February 4th with two, two-hour sessions, one at 10:00 am and one beginning at 1:00 pm. We’re limiting enrollment to 10 per session. The class costs 120.00 and includes all of your clay, firing and materials. We will meet for 6 weeks ending March 11th, with pots and sculptures picked up in a couple of weeks after that.
The class will center around clay primarily but will have a decidedly intermedia feel. Gabe and I are really looking to build a dynamic and collaborative structure to the classes, allowing each student to follow their freak while learning some fresh technique.
Any level of experience is perfect, you don’t need to know anything coming in to the class unless you want to work with the wheel. We have 3 and would prefer those spots go to people that already know how to center. teaching and learning to throw is a close connected process and I prefer to start people out with a few private lessons or a wheel only class.
This class is for adults and serious art students of any age.
