    Sculpture Without Sight

    (6)
    Touch is the first sense to develop when we are born. Yet most of our life is experienced through sight and sound. In this class, you'll be taken back to the very beginning. Explore your sense of touch by sculpturing...without sight. You will receive an introduction to basic clay sculpturing. Then you will sculpt...blindfolded! You will be given a subject to sculpt and using only your sense of touch and memory, you will create. This session is not about the finished sculpture, but the process of feeling your way through a mental image. No sculpture experience necessary. Just your willingness to express yourself through touch. At the end, you will get a photo of your sculpture to take home with you. Bring your own bottle of wine, friends, spouses, co-workers and enjoy the experience.

    Japanese Flower Arrangement - Ikebana (Saturday)

    "The earth laughs in flowers."- Ralph Waldo Emerson Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, derived from the Japanese IKERU ("keep alive, arrange flowers, living!") and HANA ("flower"). Free-style Ikebana is Ikebana which gives rein to the free sensibility of our modern daily lives. The Ikebana you create will reflect the light, relaxed style of contemporary living, free from the constraints of convention but true to your own personal lifestyle.
