Upcoming Ceramics Classes
Instructor: Alissa Mittl
Structure of Class: 6 Zoom sessions (1-2 hours each). Instructor will be available to answer questions during work time in between Zoom sessions.
Alissa will demonstrate step-by-step how to construct a three-dimensional wall tile, an ideal form for surface decoration. Then, using underglazes and carving techniques, she will explain how to build visually upon the ceramic surface to create depth and detailed imagery.
This workshop will transcend a simple how-to video series. Students, with Alissa’s guidance, will learn how to approach their pieces via a critical lens. Confidence in the studio will be developed and students will also have the opportunity to live chat with Alissa via Zoom after each demonstration to ask questions.
An interest in drawing is encouraged, but no prior experience is necessary!
