Description

Graphic Ceramics
Alyssa Block

6 Sessions >> Friday - Sunday, June 19-28
10:00am -1:00pm, Studio 106, $295

Are you a graphic designer, painter, cartoonist, or just a doodler looking for a new medium to apply your drawings? This course encourages individuals to investigate the relationships between form, narrative, and design. Each student will create a three-item collection of three-dimensional ceramic forms, embellished with two-dimensional glaze treatments based on original drawings. Group discussions will highlight other forms of sequential storytelling and other artists working in this tradition. Demonstrations and critique sessions will support students in their exploration and contemporary application of the materials. Students of any skill level are welcome to apply.

____
Alyssa Block is an artist living in San Francisco, California. She utilizes the solitary activity of drawing as a through-line between sculptures, animations, and designed objects which examine temporality, identity, and personal growth. She has exhibited her work throughout the Bay Area, including at Bass & Reiner and Gallery 16, and her functional objects have been sold through independent publishers and retailers such as Chronicle Books, The Thing Quarterly, and Rare Device.

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away.

If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes, unless otherwise noted, meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
