Master classes begin at art school this month

Staff report

The first of eight master artist workshops in ceramics and metals will begin this month at the Paducah School of Art and Design.

Artists and educators Martha Grover, who holds a master of fine arts degree in ceramics from the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth, and Jessica Calderwood, assistant professor of art at the University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh, will teach students about the idiosyncrasies of working with elegant porcelain and how to draw and paint using vitreous enamel.

"The caliber of artists teaching the ceramics and metals workshops is phenomenal and we're thrilled to have them at PSAD to offer another valuable artistic experience to our students and the community," said Dean Paul Aho.

During the two-day workshop June 27-28, Grover will discuss throwing and altering techniques suited for porcelain and how to exploit its best qualities. Demonstrations will include various wheel-thrown forms and slabs in soft and leather-hard stages to create cups, bowls, vases, pitchers, lidded forms and teapots. She will also share her sources of inspiration, philosophy and studio practices.

In Calderwood's workshop, students will transform their source images into works of art using sheet copper and porcelain coated steel. She will provide a strong direction to personal imagery and mark making to help guide students through the lesson. Basic metalworking skills are helpful but not required.

For more information and to register for the program, call Liz Dodd, PSAD division assistant, at 270-408-4278 or visit paducahschoolofartanddesign.org.
