Aug 19 - 23
Starting with basic design theory, participants will learn how to create unique images based on 2- and 3-dimensional reference materials. Shrewsbury will introduce drawing and watercolor painting as understood through the lens of traditional American-style tattooing, and these techniques will be used to create surface decorations on previously prepared bisque ware. Topics will include composition, contrast, flow, repetition, modulation and symbolism (among others); and Shrewsbury will also cover surface treatments, underglazing, and decorating over and/or under glaze. Students will leave with at least one fully-realized piece, as well as skills for generating their own symbolic vocabulary.
Space is limited to 10 students.
