This course will be a collaborative class in advanced color techniques for hollow forms with an in-depth focus on applying sculptural elements to create balance. Combining some cool color layering tech/dotstacking, with flowers/animals/leaves and other sculptural elements. The instructors will demo preplanning/drawing, full prep to finish. Thus allowing time to work with students on building their own blown work with sculptural elements and focusing on creating unique work and developing their own ideas inspired by the demo, rather than a straight "do what I do" instructor approach.
