Sculpt your favorite animal in clay! Participants will learn how to employ hand building techniques to create a variety of animals in this two-day workshop. Pictures will be used as references to develop characteristics of each small sculpture (under 10 inches). Instructions will be step by step with the ultimate goal of creating sculptures that are unique to each individual. Students will learn techniques in the first day of the workshop (April 21) to create their animal and have free access to our Clay Studio during open studio hours to continue working and finalize piece(s) if not finished on April 21. Pieces must be completed and bone dry by Sunday, May 6, allowing the Schweinfurth to bisque fire all pieces in preparation for the second day of the workshop (May 12). Students will employ under glazing techniques to complete their animals in the second class. Clay, underglazes and firing of animals included in class fee. Appropriate for all levels. Instructed by Karen Smith. Ages 16 and up.
