Fantastical Clay Creatures (Ages 7-8)
Imagine and create fictional creatures in clay. Develop characters through an exploration of capabilities drawn from the natural world, combining properties or attributes from real organisms into fictional hybrids. You’ll use basic hand-building techniques in clay to render forms that express the function of the creature’s capabilities. Acrylic paint or ceramic underglazes will be used to color the creatures.
About the Instructor
Hello world! My name is Courtney Lebow, I earned my Bachelor's in Cultural Anthropology as well as my Bachelor's of Fine Arts from SUNY Plattsburgh, in upstate NY, graduated in 2014. I relocated to Richmond, VA in July of 2014, and have been working with vibrant local organizations including The Visual Arts Center and ART 180. I'm quite the chameleon artist and love creating projects in many mediums. Teaching and utilizing my love for the arts as a vehicle for community connection is my ultimate professional goal. I am currently earning my Masters in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating Fall 2018! When I am not creating art, I can be found swing dancing, or playing the blues.See More Classes By Instructor
