Famous Artist Series

Famous Artists Series is perfect for your ceramic artist!

Your students, through personal interpretation, create a three dimensional piece of art from the works of Picasso, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Ted Harrison, Rembrandt, Frida Kahlo, Antoni Gaudi or Monet. We will use Fused Glass or clay to reflect the art of Wassily Kandinsky. Each in-school workshop will begin with a P.P.P. on the life, time and highlight of each artist’s life and work. Following Alberta Education, the lesson will be all about what the ceramic artist’s experience, views and feels from a picture and recreates that picture in clay or glass. All clay projects are glazed immediately after making and both glass and clay art is returned to the school kiln fired and ready for Artist Showing or family keepsake.

The importance of texture, so accomplishable with clay.

Texture, like any of the elements of art, can also enhance and support the artist’s concept behind the work. Some artists use texture as a major influence on our response to the work. In any work of art, however, texture can draw us in so we spend more time with the work. Van Gogh used many heavy layers of paint in the background colors to resemble texture. With clay we will use a variety of tools and various layers of slip glaze to create the desired texture with your ceramic artists.

#1. Choose an Artist – all classes are 2 hours in length, no single classes please.
#2. Choose a project – either clay and slip glaze or glass.

Costs: clay $15/students, glass $16/student plus GST
