There have been some posts about summer school workshops

so I thought that I would add the summer workshops at CIA to the list.

We have a potter, a tile maker and a sculptor. They are all excellent

teachers and our working space and facilities are some of the

best in northern Ohio. Call for details.

Ceramics: Coil Building Process

June 3-7

I Week Workshop, Course #341-A

Students will work with low-fire terra cotta as they explore the

coil-building process. Beginning students will be exposed to

basic building techniques and become familiar with the

potential and limitations of building objects in the 18-24 inch

range. More experienced students will focus on working on a

large scale, between four and five feet. Experienced students

also will learn to build nesting chucks to promote nonflat

bottoms. Since this is a five-day workshop, work completed

during this workshop will be fired at a later date.

Dennis Tobin is associate professor and director of the

summer program at Miami University in Ohio. He earned his MFA

from Illinois State University and his BFA from Wichita State

University. In 1987 he was awarded an artist fellowship a-

ward from the Illinois Arts Council, and in 1986 he received

a visual arts fellowship from the NEA. Tobin has exhibited

work extensively for the past ten years including Issues of

Abstraction, the 1994 national juried exhibition at Allegheny

College, and the invitational Group Exhibition at Anderson

Ranch Art Center in Colorado. He is a frequent lecturer and

workshop presenter.

Denis is one of the best large scale three dimensional artists in clay

His surfaces are unique and his forms are sublime.

Ceramics: A Picnic in the Garden of Eden

June 24-July 6

2 Week Workshop, Course #341-I

students will be encouraged to develop work based on the concept

of decorated dinnerware. The workshop will begin with

slides of the instructor's work and a discussion of process. The

workshop will demonstrate a variety of wheel thrown and

altered functional forms; students are expected to have basic

wheel throwing skills. Students will be encouraged to think

through individual themes and to choose forms that best

express a personal concept of a picnic in a real or imagined

place. Special attention will be given to the application of glaze,

with a concentration on layered majolica process.

Architectural Ceramics: Site Specific

June I0-21

2 Week Workshop, Course #341-F

This workshop is especially recommended, but not limited, to

artists who are interested in pursuing commissions and public

art opportunities. The instructor will discuss her experiences

with public art commissions, and offer guidance on project

budgets, deciphering blueprints, and working with architects

and administrators. Students in this workshop will develop al

site-specific work for the Cleveland Institute of Art while

addressing artistic and technical challenges. They will explore

the aesthetic as well as practical factors of the project in an

effort to create a work which is complex enough to invite the

viewer to enjoy and study a different nuance every time one

enters the space.

MFA from the University of Michigan. In 1992 she was awarded
