This workshop will be performed outside, weather permitting. We'll study the Plein Air painting techniques used by Monet, O’Keefe, and Sargent and apply those same techniques to a prepared slab of clay. Artist and collage instructor Matt Meers will demonstrate how to translate the observed landscape into a raised 3-D form, using shape, texture, light and shadow. Meers will provide individual instruction, advice, and tips on recreating your own unique perspective of the world into a high-relief sculpture. Bring your own clay tools. This workshop is for the novice to intermediate age 16 and up. To register, call CAE at 479-474-7767. Class will meet from 9 am to 1 pm on May 15th at the Center For Art & Education, 104 North 13th, Van Buren, AR.
