Abiquiu Workshop 2015

April 27 – May 1 The Narrative Figure Celebrates: honoring time, place, moment

Using handbuilding techniques, we will build the figure while thinking of a special time, person, place that has touched our life.  This figure will hold metaphors that conld be expressed by mark making, use of color or additive parts.  Demos will include ways to construct and a painterly approach to a wet surface.

 

 The fee for the workshop is $650.  This includes the tuition, 25 pounds of red sculpture clay, surface treatment, firings and three lunches at the studio.  Lunches are a combination of Northern New Mexican food and healthy salads.  If you have a guest eating lunch with us, please notify me before the workshop.  A daily lunch fee of $10.00 will be charged for each guest. 

 

If flying into Albuquerque, you can get a rental car or can take the Sandia Shuttle to Santa Fe and then get a rental car.  American Airlines and United do fly into Santa Fe.  Abiquiu is 45 miles north of Santa Fe.  If you have time, spend a few days in Santa Fe and Taos to explore, eat, and visit the galleries.  Be prepared to start shedding the stuff and move into simplicity and the land.  You may want to visit Whole Foods or Trader Joes for special foods before you drive to Abiquiu.  We do have our wonderful Bode’s – but has limited food items.
