|Clay Mono Print Demo at the Community Center |
Clay mono printing, a relatively unknown process, was invented some 30 years ago by a potter. It is taught from time to time through workshops such the one that Kay Harper Roberts will be demonstrating on Saturday, April 11, 11-3 p.m. at the Community Center.
Kay discovered clay mono printing in 2001 after working with clay slabs in pottery for more than 20 years. Her original clay mono print is a print pulled from a clay slab using colored clay slips. Once design, color, patterns and textures are built up on the slab, a print is pulled onto a textured paper. The layering process is what gives the clay mono print its unusual effects. Kay resides in Durango, Colorado and owns Harper Roberts Gallery with her husband, potter Scott K. Roberts. Kay was selected for the Pagosa Springs Art Council’s 2008 Juried Exhibition.
The cost of the Clay Mono Printing Demo is $35. Call the Arts Council to register at 264-5020.
Randall Davis’ Portrait Series Begins April 18
This month, Randall Davis will begin a long awaited three to four-part series on portraits. Students will begin by drawing key elements of the face -- eyes and mouth to start, then graduating to facial structure, hair and general composition. Students will initially work on those elements and probably won't complete a finished portrait in the first class. In the next classes they will progress to a front-on portrait, followed by work on three-quarter or side views with attention to perspective.
The first workshop of the series will be held Saturday, April 18, from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Arts and Crafts Room of the Community Center. Cost for each class is $35 and pre-registration is required. Please call PSAC at 264-5020 to register and pay for the class.
A supply list will be emailed or faxed if needed.
