We are excited to have two extremely talented artists demonstrate and explain their techniques for creating expressive facial features in clay. This is a very special opportunity to learn from highly acclaimed figurative artists. Spend the afternoon with us to hear their tips, get to know them, and enjoy spending time together in community.
