Inspiration, Experimentation & Expression:


Creating a Personal Palette


Instructor: Sharbani Das Gupta

Clay artists can get overwhelmed by the myriad of techniques available to them. Eventually however, it is the use of the artist's personal voice and aesthetic choices that results in a unique piece of art. Drawing upon experiences in her own work, Las Cruces ceramic artists, Sharbani Das Gupta, will guide students to find their own artistic voice through the use of a personal palette as a starting point for a dialogue about techniques, expression, and experimentation. Students will also be presented with a variety of image-transfer techniques to explore in their ceramics practice. 

Age/Level: 18 and up, all skill levels
Saturday, February 8, 9am - 3pm
