Slow Down - Wake Up - Make Art
September 19-21, 2014 (Fri 5 - 9 pm, Sat & Sun 9 to 5 pm ) — Learn to approach your existing artistic practice from a new perspective. Our goal will be to wake up the senses and strengthen our ability to perceive directly. Our goal is not necessarily to create finished work, but to experience methods to take to your own studio. The workshop will cultivate awareness, enliven the sense perceptions, and allow for insight. Suitable for visual artists who paint, sculpt, photograph or work in mixed media. Foundation skills will be revisited with a new approach. Nova Scotia is a magical place to experience the autumn. Both rugged and full of culture, it offers great variety for the senses and ample opportunity to "press reset" on your state of mind. Visit website

Clay Studio
October 20-26, 2014 (Monday-Friday, 9:15 am-12:15 pm) — Students learn building, throwing, glazing and firing skills while creatively pushing an idea beyond the expected. Through the common challenge of creating anthropomorphic vessels, incorporating human-like qualities as subtle as an implied gesture or as direct as the human form, we will explore hand-building construction using coil, pinch, slab and extrusion methods, as well as wheel throwing. These varied approaches offer many options for creating sculptural, architectural, narrative, nesting and transitional forms. Students are encouraged to use as many building methods as desired. Using fire, paper, sawdust and even horse hair, the smoke of the raku firing process creates unexpected and unique finishing results that are an exhilarating conclusion to the processes of this workshop. Evening firing schedule will be assigned. Visit website
