Join us this week on Zoom! Free & open to all.

The Boldness as Well as the
Lightness Using Pastels

Instructor: Lisa Arnold
Tuesday, May 26 2:00 pmPastels can offer a wide range of variety – one can seek and achieve translucent qualities as well as create bold blending of color as well. One of the more modest of mediums, artists can really enjoy color exploration using very forgiving strokes, blends and feathering and more. Demos and an “assignment” will be given during the first session. This second session will consist of a “critique” about the assignment from the May 19th session, and short demos about color and techniques. Even if you miss the first session, you are welcome to join as an observer and learn!Join Zoom Meeting

Potters Wheel Demonstration on the Handless Cup Form
with GAC instructor Justin Gerace
Thursday May, 28 12:00pm -1:00pm The handless cup form has many shapes and sizes as well as decorative surfaces. This timeless form has its tradition rooted in Chinese and Japanese tea ceremony wares, yet many potters in the west have developed their own vocabulary on such a classical utilitarian form. Join Justin Gerace on Thursday May 21st from 12:00pm -1:00pm for a live zoom potters wheel demonstration on how to make and decorate a wide variety of handless drinking vessels. Justin will demonstrate how to construct, shape, design and decorate various interpretations of the handless cup directly on the potters wheel. Come learn, enjoy and have fun!Join Zoom Meeting
