Art school sets summer workshops

BY LAUREL BLACK lblack@paducahsun.com

The Paducah School of Art & Design hopes a new educational initiative will help bolster the school's reputation and reinforce Paducah's image as an arts destination.

The school will start its inaugural series of master artists workshops in late June. The workshops will feature five ceramics and three metals artists from around the country, said Paul Aho, dean of the art school.

"It's an opportunity to put our name out, promote ourselves and establish a reputation within the field as the school that we aim to be: a nationally-recognized leader for the visual arts," Aho said.

The workshops are open to anyone interested in the field of ceramics or metal arts. They last anywhere from two to five days, depending on the workshop. The artists will explore specific techniques, such as salt-firing ceramics and jewelry enameling and granulating, through demonstration and hands-on participation. Prices range from $290 to $490, Aho said.

Artists leading the workshops are Susan Beecher, Jessica Calderwood, Harris Deller, Martha Grover, Doug Harling, Tova Lund, John Neely and Craig Rhodes.

Aho said the school plans to expand the summer workshops in the coming years, offering a sculpture program that will coincide with the opening of the school's sculpture facility at Madison Hall in Lower Town. The program will eventually consist of 20 summer workshops.
