On a cold Saturday morning, McColl Center hosted two art workshops in Charlotte which allowed participants to warm up their creativity.
In the Color Theory Basics workshop, McColl Center alumna artist Felicia van Bork prompted critical thinkers to order cool and warm colors and challenged participants to create drawings that accurately represented objects both in light and in shadow.
New and experienced potters, led by Charlotte-based artist Kristen van Diggelen Sloan in the Functional Ceramics workshop, shaped clay using hump and slump molds. Potter’s needles, wooden modeling tools, sponges, and a potter’s wheel gave participants ways to craft inspired and ornate pieces. Some of the participants chose to have their pieces fired in McColl Center’s kiln.
