$235 for members, seniors, and students

Some clay experience is suggested.
This intensive two-day workshop will focus on coil-building techniques for the human form. Day 1 will be chock-full of demonstrations and slide presentations looking at problem solving, internal support structures and sectioning techniques for large work. Day 2 will be hands-on, with participants learning how to visualize where and technically how to start a medium-size seated figure. This beginning structure is critical as it functions as a strong, well engineered foundation supporting the rest of the piece. We will use a sculpture clay body with nylon fiber that's perfect for larger sculptural forms. Students have the option of taking their work home unfinished, or staying on at the Clay Studio through July 3 to finish it (access included with tuition).
Adrian Arleo is a ceramic sculptor living outside Missoula, Montana. She studied Art and Anthropology at Pitzer College (B.A. 1983) and received her M.F.A. in ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design in 1986. Arleo was an Artist in Residence at Oregon College of Art and Craft in 1986-87, and at Sitka Center For Art and Ecology in 1987-88. For nearly thirty years, Arleo has focused her work on the human figure, often combining it with animal imagery, and other elements of the natural world. Some works allude to a relationship of understanding or connection between the human and animal realms. In others, human figures possess animal features in a way that reveals something hidden about the character or primal nature of the human.
