Artmaking From Home: DIY Pottery

FRI, July 10, 2020
1 pm

Online, via Zoom

Experiment with ordinary materials in new and creative ways with these online artmaking events designed for all ages. Each project explores artworks from the Whitney’s collection and invites participants to consider the relationship between artmaking and our domestic spaces. All events in this series are live, thirty-minute sessions taught by a Whitney educator.

Taking inspiration from works by Betty Woodman and Arlene Shechet, we will mix our own clay using everyday household materials and explore hand-building techniques to create our own ceramic sculptures.

Instructor: Stina Puotinen is an artist, educator, and occasional curator from New York City.
