Abiquiu Workshop 2015

June 1 – 5   The Narrative Figure “looking inside” 

Tell your personal story by tapping on inside.  We will explore ways to use personal symbols to allow figurative works to have meaning and metaphor.  Think about a figurative gesture that is interesting and allows you to tell your story.  We will explore different handbuilding techniques and painterly surface treatments using a combination of engobes, underglazes and oxides.  Daily meditations, walks in the desert and sharing of conversation will allow everyone to define a personal voice in their work.  Touring Georgia O’Keefe’s home is optional but highly recommended.

 

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.
