Fall One Week Clay

Clay and Drawing – Fall One-Week Session
September 19-25, 2021
Alice Ballard
Finding Your Form through Drawing and Clay

In this process-oriented workshop we’ll move back and forth between clay and various drawing media, seeking inspiration from the beautiful Penland setting and the host of natural forms within that environment. Working inside and outside the studio, our ideas and materials will be our partners, and the creative process will lead us. Artists used to working in two dimensions and those who usually work in three will all benefit from the contrast and combination of these two ways of working. We’ll work with a variety of drawing media and sculpt in red earthenware. All levels. Upper clay studio.
