Potent Pair – Form & Color

The ability of color to manipulate the viewer’s perception of and response to form will be discussed and experimented with in this three day workshop with renowned artist Helen Shirk. The workshop will include demonstrations of 3D hammer forming processes (like you have never seen before), texturing, attachment, and methods of surface coloration including prismacolor pencils, chemicals, and paint. Students will work in copper to develop combinations of form and color that give power and presence to their metalwork. Helen Shirk is Professor of Art Emerita at San Diego State University where she taught from 1975-2010. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to learn from a rock star!
