Go behind the scenes to watch and learn from two of the featured artists in Continuous Clay! The artists will conduct side-by-side demonstrations to walk you through various technical processes incorporated in their dynamic art practices while chatting about their different approaches to the medium. Michelle Gregor will demonstrate her sculpting techniques which incorporate gestural mark making and improvisation. She will also deconstruct the human figure into simple shapes from which to create various poses; reclining, seated and standing.
Mark Messenger will demonstrate his process for creating a human bust. He will take you through the full sequence of his process from his use of conceptual drawings, maquettes, and physical supports to actual sculpting, hollowing and completing the work.
Demonstration to be held in the MarinMOCA classroom, located behind the museum at 781 Hamilton Parkway.
