Capturing the Figure in Motion
Need a break from classic, still portraitures? Learn from our visiting artist how to render and define the features of a figure in motion. Robichau will discuss how to capture a pose and will share his techniques for using value to bring out the three-dimensionality of his figures. Acrylics, including metallic paint, a specialty of the artist, will be used for the class. (A one hour lunch break is included so bring a lunch or stroll up to the Square for a bite.)

Raku Christmas Trees
A raku firing is a fantastic ceramic firing process to watch and to take part in, leaving elegant and surprising glazed surfaces of varied color and texture. Students will create fabulous ceramic Christmas trees from a pre-made blank and will learn the process of making their own blanks. Their trees will be bisque fired, glazed and finally fired in the raku process. Students are welcome to play with fire by actively participating in the Saturday raku. Price includes materials.
