Intermediate Clay: The Horse of Course

Instructors: Robin Murphy, Karen Keenan, and Robert DeArmond 

Thursdays January 6, 2022 – March 10, 2022 (8 sessions, 2 weeks off) 

6:30pm-9:00pm

$215 ($245 non-member)

Using the horse as the theme for this class, students will explore its cultural significance, meaning, and symbolism in present and through time. Examples of artist’s work inspired by this fascinating creature will be discussed. Class participants will learn to translate their voice and vision to finished three-dimensional clay objects through a variety of forming, surface, and decorating techniques. Join local artists Robin Murphy, Karen Keenan, and Robert DeArmond for this intermediate level class. They will provide instruction in throwing and a variety of hand-building techniques. Decorating techniques for wet, leather hard and bisque clay stages, such as slip trailing, sgraffito, mishima, wax resist, craving, and more will be covered.

A companion drawing class will be offered during the same time which uses the horse as the source of inspiration. At times, these two classes will meet to focus on common content and to inspire each other. Participants will have an opportunity to exhibit work from this class at The Horse of Course invitational exhibition at the Nordic Center opening on March 18, 2022.

***Proof of vaccination is required to participate in this class. On the first day of class students must present their vaccine card (a copy of it is okay) as well as a form of identification. Masks will be required.
