Month-long Drawing Challenge: Using the drawing on clay techniques of scraffitto and mishima, make a set of 31 individual drink coasters inspired by daily word prompts.
Beginning on Saturday, September 30th, participants will come to an in-studio workshop in scraffitto and mishima. Students will then be given 7 pre-made clay coasters, 7 colors of underglaze, and a scratch tool to take home so that they can create a new piece of art each day as they follow the word prompts which will be texted daily. Stop into the studio each Saturday morning during October and drop off your pieces to be fired and pick up 7 more blank coasters for the upcoming week. Repeat through the month of October!
The ceramics department is offering two ways to participate:
Weekly or monthly.
***This sign up is for all four sessions***
To pursue my interest in the arts, I attended Bennington College in Vermont, a school with a deep history in ceramic arts, where I received my B.A. in ceramics. During that time, I also worked in a ceramics factory, under glazing literally hundreds of pots a day! The following year I had the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and intern at the Capitol Children’s Museum and create a ceramics studio and program. In 2003, I moved to Grant County where I met my husband, David, and joined him in the Nomad Sign Art studio and learned the old school art of hand lettering and hand-crafting signs. These days my 500-pound potter’s wheel sits cozily in our living room next to the woodstove, where our whole family can learn to play on it.
I am extremely excited to share my love of clay at the Painted Sky Center for the Arts. So many of my best memories and closest bonds have been made working in studios, making art, and playing in the mud.
