We keep hearing that artists should develop a personal style, but the details of how that’s done are often vague and ethereal. So we were fortunate to have Kathleen Dustin as our Guest Artist at Sunday’s meeting. She spoke and used slides to tell us the story of how she developed her style and gave us a mini story of her life in the process. Of course the pictures were beautiful and the talk was fascinating. This meeting was open to our membership at no extra cost.
Kathleen came to the guild earlier in the week to teach a two-day master class on building vessels.
The show and tell pictures have some of the projects students made during the class and other items.
Earlier this week, I posted about Clayathon and this year’s guest artist Leslie Blackford. Aside from Leslie’s example bird, all of the pictures in that post show birds Clayathon attendees made under Leslie’s expert tutelage. I forgot to mention that Leslie also demonstrated how to sculpt realistic looking twigs for the birds to perch on.
While everyone watched and enjoyed the demos, some people worked on other projects
More Clayathon highlights to follow!
