The 2013 training programme at Studio 66 art gallery begins on April 6 with a three-week clay sculpture workshop, Fire and Earth. The workshop, which ends April 27, is the first of five which all take place at Studio 66, 66 Sixth Street, Barataria.
Lead facilitator of the workshop is sculptor Sherlann Peters.
Peters' work has been featured in many local solo and group exhibitions and is also housed in private collections locally and internationally.
Guest facilitators include former University of the West Indies lecturer Carlstad Seales, sculptor Dharmbodh Westmass and artist Turunesh.
The workshop will cover busts, human figures, masks and free forms. The processes of firing, colouring and glazing will also be introduced. Local clay will be used and all material for the classes will be provided by Studio 66. Only the first 20 applicants will be accepted.
Workshop sessions are Wednesdays from 4 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm. Other workshops in the training programme include cardboard and wire sculpture, papier mache and mas-making using found objects and recycled materials.
