Students will be challenged to mix up their surfaces and/or forms with a variety of textures and processes. We will make some basic texturing tools/stamps to use as decorative mimics of nature and/or whatever inspires.  An overview of handbuiding techniques will be demonstrated and students will be encouraged to combine a multitude of techniques when constructing their form.


**For Sara's classes, please be sure to bring a trash bag to wrap your work with!**
