Tricia Schmidt & Kurt Brian Webb: Concatenation of Art & Education

Tricia Schmidt & Kurt Brian Webb: Concatenation of Art & Education

Join artists and educators, Tricia Schmidt and Kurt Brian Webb, for a workshop on figurative storytelling in contemporary ceramics, their relevant work as educators, and where these paths intersect. Schmidt and Webb will demonstrate their respective illustrating and figurative decoration techniques while discussing how symbolism and social commentary are expressed in their works as well as how their works fit in the lineage of narrative pots. With a combined 50+ years of experience teaching in public schools, Webb and Schmidt will also share insights on guiding students in their expression of story and how their role as educators weaves with their artistic practice. As you absorb their teaching and techniques, practice surface decoration methods on tiles and forms of your own.
