The Clay Studio and the Life Drawing Studio at the Hoffman Center complex present the result of their respective forms of art. Come and enjoy the opening reception on Friday August 31st, from 5 to 7 p.m. The show continues from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday of the Labor Day weekend.
The gallery show is in the Hoffman House Studios building at 595 Laneda in Manzanita.
The Life Drawing Group has been meeting there since 2003. Artists come together to draw the live figure Sundays from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. If you are an artist interested in honing your skills in this time honored way, please show up any Sunday. The fee for the three hours is $15.
The Clay Studio at 594 Laneda is open to the public Tuesdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Thursdays 5 to 8 p.m. Kiln firings are done on a regular basis to move the process of forming and glazing clay to a finished product. Come in and experience the joy of playing with clay and discovering your latent artistic talents. The studio charges $2 per hour, and $2 for 2 pounds of clay. These prices include the eventual cost of glazing and firing. The Clay Studio will fire clay pieces created outside the studio for a nominal fee. Two or three times a year a special Raku firing is done outside using specific glazes for that process. Each piece turns out to have a finish that is a magical surprise.
