Shadow Mays Demonstrating Workshop 

"What do you get when Japanese architecture meets Fred Flintstone ceramics? Bold, organic, fresh looking pots. Shadow will use the wheel as a tool to achieve a form, and incorporate basic hand building and slab techniques to reveal a unique, fresh look to the work. He will throw out slabs by hand and show how to fold, bend, and encapsulate air within them for altering, using minimal tools to accent and manipulate the work for a primitive yet sophisticated look."

         Draw, Paint, and Collage YOUR Pet! Held at the community center
 This two- day class will show you how to use and reuse the same drawing. We will draw, then add color to a copy of your drawing and finally make an abstract collage of your own pet. This is a fast paced class where many skills will be learned, yet little or no artistic skills are needed to enroll. 

Students must bring a clear color photo of their pet’s head and an 5 x 7 enlarged black and white photo copy of this same photo. Dog/ Cat photos will be provided if you do not have a photo. Students should also bring a scissors. Beginner to Advanced

  $100 plus class supply fee of $15
