Explore ceramics with our classes:

INTERMEDIATE POTTERY with Eric Burress

We are excited to offer longtime pottery students at the gallery an opportunity to learn new skills. Eric Burress, ceramics instructor at Sumter High School with an MFA from Clemson in sculpture and an extensive ceramic course of study, will lead students in intermediate finishing techniques and mark-making. Learn to trim and make more precise utilitarian pieces. Students will learn how to approach throwing on the wheel with a well planned form in mind. Press molds and stamp options for texturing will be used to apply surfaces to thrown or slump molded forms.

Three options for painting classes:

OIL PAINTING with Dennis Snell

Dennis is changing it up a little and offering an oils only class for beginner and intermediate painters. Come experience the richness of oil paint and learn about brushes, palettes and color mixing. Students will work from a still life and photographs to produce two works of art on canvas during the course of the class. Oils allow students time to be thoughtful and Dennis is a positive and patient instructor. If you are tired of sitting at home shivering – this class is for you!
