Exciting Summer Workshop in Beautiful Estes Park, Colorado

Earth as Mother, Artist as Child
If sand between your toes or making mud pies on a summer afternoon is a warm,
kinetic memory, then working in clay is the way to ease your over-extended
frazzle. This course will take you from the techniques of hand- building to an
understanding of the nature of clay, the earth's most abundant substance. Clay
is the most impressive of materials and can easily divulge a compendium of
emotional and tactile information instilled by the artist's hand. Learn the
basics of form and a smattering of function, as well as interesting ways to
capture the Mother's secrets in a permanent medium. Class work includes hand
building, glazing, and firing. If you are an intermediate or advanced ceramist
our clay studio offers complete equipment for whatever level you would like to
experience. Our primary intent is to help you initiate a personal union with
this simplest of materials.
Workshop Leader: Marty Yochum
Dates: August 5-9, 1998
Cost: $339.00
Participants: 3-6

Marty Yochum is an artist and writer who received a BFA in ceramics and an MFA
in sculpture from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she taught
Design. She has received national awards in North Dakota, Texas, and Colorado

well known for her highly original and creative ceramic sculptures based on a
culturally diverse personal mythology. She is a frequent speaker on
contemporary art and art issues as well as a personal support group leader for

A summer workshop worth considering is Clint Swink's Anasazi Potterymaking,
July 13-19 (beginning) and July 20-26 (advanced) at Taos Art School,
505-758-0350. I participated in a workshop of his last year and was
delighted with it.
