#697 – Ceramic Brush Stroke Techniques Winter 2015

Elaine Rowgo

This workshop is aimed at tackling underglazes on ceremics. Making brushes from human hair is just a part of the experience. Demonstrations will include painting leaves in various ways, painting fish with two different approaches and finally painting a bird.
Painting on clay is challenging and there are several tricks I have learned over the years with many experiments. Samples of finished pottery and step by step handouts will be included in this 3 hour session. Bring very plain greenware ready to paint, dry is preferable.
A smooth clay surface and very simple shapes, that allow your hand to get inside and outside the piece, are best for this project. Painting experience is not required.

Brushes, practice paper are provided. Also feel free to use your own brushes if you are comfortable with them. 

**Workshop price for current Winter term students is $25.  Please call 321-674-8923 to register. 

I am one of those people who played “Art Teacher” to my younger brother and sister, at age 6. I have always loved drawing, painting, and the visual world. Clay is just a wider field of expression in the creative field. So I like to teach my passion about this medium with the hope that my students also find it fascinating.

I enjoy all aspects of clay: wheel throwing; hand building; and sculpture. With my BFA in painting I tend also to combine painting with certain forms. My approach to teaching is to encourage every student to find their own “voice” in clay. Discovering clay’s huge range of possibilities, sharing what I have learned over a decade of teaching, and seeing students explore what clay can do, make it an exciting medium to teach.
