Join us for a virtual field trip to an artist's studio! We will visit contemporary ceramic artists for a guided tour of their space, a demo of their process, and discussion about their work and how it has progressed throughout their career. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
This week, we visit the studio of sculptor Christina Erives! Christina believes that ceramics as material has permanence, it is one of the ways we were able to learn about ancient cultures. There is so much beauty in these traditions and her aim has been to make a mark of her time that will be preserved in the history of ceramic objects.
Event: Saturday, August 15th, 2020 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm EST
