As artist-in-residence I focus attention on the creative process and how it relates to all disciplines in life.
About the Assembly
We explore different cultures during a live demonstration —and discuss the steps that an artist takes in the creative process. Students watch unformed clay rise from the potter’s wheel into a beautiful vase or bowl.
Large scale forms are engaging and inspiring. We’ll look at how they have played a role in Native American, Greek, Japanese, Latin American, and African cultures. My background in art, art history and multi-cultural comparisons lead to a discussion with students on the stories each culture tells through their art.
