Make your own one-of-a-kind clay tile, or two. Using air dry clay, create tiles in many different shapes and sizes. Then add textured patterns and designs to each one. Later, to accent the unique designs, add color with paint, subtle or vibrant. It's amazing how everyone will start out with the same materials, then using the same tools and the same techniques will end up with all totally different, unique work!
Each student will go home with a completed piece of art work! Ticket includes a cheese plate with your choice of Boar's Head cheese, crackers, crasins, almonds and one glass of your favorite Wildside Wine! (Non-alcoholic options are available.) Class is 6:30 - 8:30pm.
Marianne Brown Mize has been a full-time potter here in Kentucky for over 25 years, teaching in clay for almost as long and she has been working with both kids and adults at the Living Arts and Science Center in Lexington, KY for 14 years and the Bluegrass Art Center in Danville, KY for 2 years.
Marianne holds a BFA from the Memphis College of Art, is a juried member of the Kentucky Arts Council's Kentucky Crafted program and the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen. Marianne loves working with kids of all ages in clay because it shows them that the possibilities are endless, and it stretches the imagination. If you have an image or idea in your mind there is a way to make it in clay!
