It's 2021!! What does your 21st century family look like? I can remember the Jetsons and their space age city from my childhood when 2021 seemed lightyears away. What do you imagine your family could look like in 2050? Or parents, what did you imagine life would look like in 2021? Make your own set of family characters in clay to mark the beginning of a new year. A kit with clay and underglazes will be provided for work at home. Basic clay techniques will be discussed over the zoom session. Your characters are then painted with underglaze (as shown in the image above) and delivered to CAM for bisque firing. A final clear glaze will also be applied before a second firing is done.

Our Place in This World: Thomas Cole

Sunday, 3/7/2021
2:30PM-3:30PM  
Virtual Class - American Landscape Artists- Thomas Cole
with instructor Luc Travers

The goal of this series is to immerse ourselves into the worlds created by these artists, sensually, emotionally, and intellectually. We'll learn techniques for getting the most out of enjoying landscape paintings (including the use of music to enhance the mood of the landscape). We'll look deeply into each artist's world and examine what they had to say about our relationship with nature and our relationship with the universe. And we'll explore how the ideas in their landscapes reflected their personal lives and philosophies.
