Instructor: Wendy Converse

Participants will be introduced to three traditional forming techniques - pinch, coil, and slab - as we explore simple clay bowls, with a seasonal twist. Create a serving bowl for your holiday table, form a personalized morning cereal bowl, or simply enjoy playing with clay with this fun, introduction to clay. All skill levels welcome. Clay, glaze, tools and firing costs are included in the price of the class.. If you have any old hand towels, bring a couple for drying your hands, as this will help us all be a little greener and not use paper towels.

Exploring Acrylics - the Other Watercolor

Date: Wednesday-Thursday, November 7-8 (10am-4pm)
Cost: $105 ($100 for BRAC Members), plus $15 materials fee*
Instructor: Jane Todd Butcher

This workshop explores many ways that acrylic paints can be used in a fluid manner. Acrylics are actually "water colors" since they are water soluble, but they can be easier to use than traditional watercolors, may be painted on paper or canvas and may be more vibrant and more durable. Artists will explore the versatility of fluid acrylics in transparent and opaque techniques, glazing, layering and more. We will experiment with painting on different surfaces and combining with other mediums. Watercolorists may find that combining acrylics with their transparent watercolors adds richness to watercolors, helps fix problem areas and creates new effects.

Payment must be received by November 1 to be included in this class.

*$15.00 supply fee or participants may bring their own acrylics.
