Project Art Virtual Studio

The Project Art Virtual Studio launches with live and recorded online programming in 2021 beginning with Sergei Isupov, Mark Shapiro and Beckie Kravetz through Teachable.com. Beginning with live demonstrations via Zoom, these and other artists will be offering pre-recorded video instruction, mentoring and studio tours. Our shift to online programming was made possible through a micro-enterprise grant from Hilltown CDC enabling us to equip the studio and provide technical support.

Below are the first three courses offered through the Virtual Studio, with links to sign up at Teachable.com.

The Thing About Cups–March 2021

 

 The cup is perhaps the most basic vessel. Our bodies demand hydration even more than nutrition. This essential deliverer of liquid offers practically infinite ceramic variation and magnificent opportunities for individual expression. Not surprisingly, it’s usually the first pot that potters learn to make and the first pot that attracts a customer.

 In this jam-packed mini workshop, Mark Shapiro will demonstrate a series of approaches to this essential form, including faceted porcelain and rope-inlayed teacups, footed chalices, and water “glasses,” including his signature surface treatments.

The demonstration will take place on Zoom. Participation will be limited to 50 attendees.  A link will be sent out to participants after they have registered and purchased a ticket. Two identical sessions will be offered of Capturing Character to allow participants to watch and participate live from various time zones.

 Session one will be on Friday March xxx 2021 at 6PM EST (New York). Session two will be on Saturday March xxx, 2021 at 12 p.m. EST (New York).   To find the corresponding time in your city, please check this world clock website.
