Class description by Sandra: Clay is very much like the human body. The elements of each are the same. Clay behaves much like skin. It remembers each twist or tool mark. Clay has the ability to absorb energy/feeling, much like a poultice.
Consider: What is the shape of your power/helper animal.?
What is the shape of your own spirit?
What is the message you would tell yourself and what would the ambassador of that message look like?
This will be an intensive in clay sculpture providing participants with the knowledge to produce hand built work at home from concept to finished pieces. The focus will be that of figurative that is of the human/animal body. In sculpture this is often used as a metaphor for something bigger- more profound. Choose to create something that has meaning to you. It could easily be fun and goofy. This work can be placed indoors or outdoors. Think of where it might live so that you can consider the base/etc. Participants will be expected to research ideas and come prepared with a proposed concept or desire. Drawings- images etc. Look up other artists in clay and borrow. Here are some clay artists to Google;
Adrian Arleo, Debra W. Fritts, Ronna Neuenschwander, Mark Chatterly
