Life Drawing with Pigment Powders & a chamois 10min -20 min poses

STAPLES SCAN 2015 scan 1 Lately I have been experimenting with a new technique Рdrawing with pigment powders and a chamois. It has been difficult and I am only successful  for a fraction of my drawings. Here are some examples of my successes so far.

Clay the most versatile Medium!

Hello Everyone,

We are starting up our classes for the September-December term and we wanted to invite you all to sign up for one of them:)
We have throwing classes on Monday evenings (Hilary) starting September 14th, Wednesday mornings (Cathi) starting on September 16th, and Thursdayevenings (Hilary) starting September 10th. We are also introducing a very unique and interesting class on sculpture and decorating techniques with our newest rock star clay master (Angela) starting Wednesday evenings starting September 23rd.
We also have kids classes with super fun programming starting up Wednesday afternoons (Cathi) September 16th for kids 8-12 and Thursday afternoons (Janet) September 17th for kids 4-7. We now have a streamlined home school invoice system so you can take it home the first class and submit it to your service provider.
We also have a short class on Hand-Building (Ewa) starting October 27th and a delightful pumpkin tea light 3 hour workshop (Tanis) on October 3.
The open studio hours are posted on our website and those of you that have an annual membership are welcome to come down and spend some blissful hours in the studio with our amazing volunteers. If you were a previous student whose class membership has expired, you can pay for a half year membership for $25!! We endeavour to have the studio open regular hours (9am to 3pm) including some class time, so folks find it easier to keep track:)
All the specific details of times and prices are on our website.
We are having our annual fundraiser “beer and burger” event at the Pub in Cowichan Bay, September 27th tickets are available from the monitors and instructors at the studio for $25 which includes a draw prize entry. There will be a diverse silent auction that night and lots of amazing music and warm conversation.
We are also doing a semi annual purge of unloved, unclaimed pots on September 25th so if you have a special pot in the studio but haven’t been in there in a while, you can stop by and pick it up or place it on the special shelf as labelled:)
We look so forward to seeing all of you again,
the clay hub collective

ps-please let us know if you would like to be removed from the email list:)
