I teach at community college level and emphasis is usually on techniques as most students want the piece to 'work' in practical terms. This means that I sometimes 'forget' to draw attention to the broader, richer aspects of the clay 'art' medium.
A 'Copying the Masters' class, a long and well respected tradition in painting, will now be scheduled for mid-term.
