Workshop with Steve Beverage
In collaboration with the DALI/DUCHAMP exhibit at The Dali Museum
In partnership with The Dali Museum and in celebration of their current special exhibition, Dali/Duchamp (Feb 10 - May 27, 2018), the Morean Arts Center is hosting a workshop dedicated to exploring Marcel Duchamp’s idea of the “Ready-Made”. What does it mean to strip an everyday object of its utilitarian purpose and render it purely artistic instead? If Duchamp were working today, how might his Ready-Mades look? What mundane objects might catch his eye, and how might he disassemble and reconfigure said objects for the purposes of Art?In this hands-on workshop, you will create your own assisted Ready-Made.
CREATIVE VISUAL GAMES
Workshop with Rebecca Skelton
Art games stimulate the imagination and nurture creativity. The participants need only to possess the drawing skills of a child. Playing contacts the subconscious by allowing us to go outside of our ordinary selves, which enhances our creativity. Imagination and play is the core of creative art. Participants take home their work from class, but the true value of the workshop is the expanded sense of possibility garnered from the experience of exercising the imagination. Basic materials (pencils, copy paper, colored paper, crayons) will be furnished, but feel free to bring anything you would like. We will begin with a guided meditation to unblock creative energy to get us started.
Peeling the Onion…
…without all the tears! This workshop will focus on creating dynamic, layered, and interesting ceramic surfaces for both functional and sculptural vessels. We will enhance and enliven our ceramic surfaces by building up slip and terra sigilatta to create a dynamic, layered background for glaze to interact with. Demonstrations will include slip application from wet clay all the way up to the bone dry state. The bulk of the workshop will be spent discussing and exploring leather hard and bone dry applications.
Learn the magic of the work by Don and Cristina Williams. They will share their throwing, sculpting and decorating techniques in this two-day workshop. They will also discuss on topics of Raku firing and reduction.
Join Eric Botybl for a two day hands on workshop in which we will explore the dynamic surfaces and textures of Eric's work. This class will push, pull, cut and stretch your work in new ways. Eric will demonstrate how he achieves his unique style and participants will get the majority of the class time to work with Eric on discovering how his process can be applied to their own work. Eric will also go over his slips, inlay and cone 6 ash glazes which are done through multiple firings. This class is open to all experience levels and welcomes both wheel throwers and hand builders.
