Hand-building: The Functional Animal

Instructor: Anna Vaughan

Mondays 10am1pm

Animals have been replicated in art since the cave paintings at Lascaux; ceramics too has historical roots in this tradition. Many contemporary artists use animals as muses for creating unique and beautiful functional forms. In this class students will learn to create bowls, jars, vases and lidded forms that incorporate the body gestures and expressions of animals. Students will receive hands-on demonstrations working with clay and visual presentations of this rich and varied art form.  All skill levels welcome.


The next Mon. morning session begins Oct. 14 Please register below.

Priority registration is given to the current students in a class. Their deadline to re-enroll is class #5 of each 8-class session. 

The number of students opting out of re-enrollment will open up that many spots, initially, to people on each class's notification list. A given notification list is solely tied to a specific class session (e.g,, May 2 - July 2). There’s no roll-over of the notification list to the following session. 

Should we be unable to fill this class via the notification list, we’ll add a registration link to this page, first-come/first-serve.
