Hi Everyone,
Big News! Sierra Nevada College's art department, including ceramics,
has now moved to our lake campus. Now we're just footsteps away from the
dorms, gallery, the rest of the campus, and a short walk to the beach at
Lake Tahoe. We're building a new kiln yard, have a new kiln, and a
fresh, clean, new studio. We're continuing our tradition of bringing
incredibly talented ceramic artists to SNC to teach for the summer
visiting artist workshop program.

The poster/schedule is currently at the printer, and if you'd like me
to mail you a copy, please e-mail me your snail mail address, and I'll
happily send you one!

This summer we're having the following ceramic workshops:

"Fast Fire Pottree"
Randy Brodnax & Don Ellis June 4th - 8th
"Yes and No: Pottery is Vital"
Andy Shaw June 11th - 15th
"Think Again: The Wheel Doesn't Always Say Round" Jeff Oestreich
June 18th - 22nd
"New Approaches to Pottery" Andy
Brayman June 25h - 29th
"Pottery as Expression"
Josh DeWeese July 9th - 13th
"Stretching...Materials and Maker" Bill
Abright July 16th - 20th
"Exploring Pouring: Pots that Pour" Bill

Weekend Workshops:

You can take the workshops for credit, or non-credit. On campus housing

dining room, are included in the tuition.

On Tuesday nights during the workshops, we host a FREE "Meet the
Artist" slide lecture at 7pm, immediately followed by an informal
gallery reception. Please come see us!
