Participants will develop their artistic voice through personal investigation while working with clay independently from home. They will have the opportunity to seek guidance via email and elective meetings peppered throughout the session. Guidance will focus on technical or aesthetic problem-solving issues they may have with their projects. They may also use this time to seek technical advice in setting a studio up at home. Glaze time and wheel rentals are available at an additional cost. Both must be scheduled with the ACW supervisor.
Who is it for?
Intermediate to advanced potters who may wish to social-distance or are in an at-risk demographic during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
