Self-Expression Through Clay:
Creating Personal Narrative Using Flora And Fauna
Taylor Robenalt

2-Day Workshop
September 19-20
Saturday- Sunday 9:30am-4:30pm

Are we separate? Are we integral? Participants in this weekend workshop will explore constructing a personal narrative using flora and fauna to tell their story. Students will examine the way we, as humans, perceive the animal and vegetable worlds. By intertwining personal metaphors in their work, students will begin to unlock the meaning, content and power behind their art. Use of porcelain will be recommended in this class to achieve pristine and delicate qualities. Underglazes and colored slips will be employed for accurate coloring.
