Visiting Scholar Lecture with Matthew Katz - FULL

5:30pm to 6:30pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

Matthew Katz"Rumor Mill" - This lecture is now FULL

We'll discuss, explore, and destroy some of the common ceramic myths. We will discuss topics such as "No, opening your kiln early does not cause crazing" and " Gas escaping from your clay can't cause pin-holing. Physics doesn't work that way." as well as others. We will wash away the nonsense, and fill you with optimism and information. 

Matthew Katz is the instructor of our Summer 2018 course Glaze and Clay Body Chemistry.

Matthew Katz has taught ceramic materials for artists at Alfred University for over 15 years. He is a working ceramic artist with a B.F.A from Alfred and M.F.A. from the University of Colorado-Boulder and has worked as a Ceramic Engineer and researcher for almost 20 years.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Sign up below!

ARTS FIRST at the Harvard Art Museums: Direct Animation & Cameraless Filmmaking Materials Lab Workshop

1:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

Amid the devastation following World War II, German artists and filmmakers engaged in technical experimentation that drew upon multiple media as they sought to redefine the nature of artistic practice and its relationship to national identity. Among these experimental forms was cameraless animation, a method of abstract filmmaking that involves the direct manipulation of film through scratching, puncturing, painting, and chemical alteration of emulsion.
