Registration open for Weekend Ceramics Intensive

Cobscook Institute 10 Commissary Point Road, Lubec

Established students and professional artists are invited to register for an upcoming weekend of focused creative and artistic exchange in our pottery studio at the Cobscook Institute. By gathering and working together, we will celebrate our connection as artists, and explore our media in depth.

There will be no formal instruction during this session. Informal critiques may occur if participants desire. Likewise a collaborative project or technique may be explored should the group feel inclined. The atmosphere will encourage independent, focused work, interspersed with periods of verbal exchange around topics of art, inspiration, creativity, and execution of projects, as the need or inclination arises. The workshop will run on June 11 and 12 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. Register here.
