November 1, 2019 – Quick Studies in Clay


SKU: N/A Category:


Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a ½ day workshop, Quick Studies in Clay with
Anne Grannis.

Anne will be teaching techniques to sculpt a whole figure, a torso, or a bas relief using water-
based clay. This intense session will guide the beginning or advanced sculptor in the essence
of figure sculpting, giving the student a spontaneous, emotional arena to work in; without the
finishing details of a refined piece. We will be working from a live model.

Anne has been teaching and working with clay since she was a girl growing up in an artistic
household of New England. She has taught ceramic workshops, stone carving and sculpture in
Northern California areas; Fort Mason Art School, San Francisco and Half Moon Bay. She was
the Artistic Council Chair of SFWA Gallery – Sculpture Representative. She’s taught Quick
Studies in Clay in Half Moon Bay, Redwood City, and Palo Alto and now shares her knowledge
with us in Morro Bay.

Anne says: “I often use natural clay, as it is an amazingly pliable medium with which to
work and being a material originating eons ago, I can connect with the far past to create
anything large and rough or small and detailed, with everything in between. My sense of
whimsy prevails.”

Clay and tools will be provided. Please bring a 12” to 14” square board to work on and an
apron. Bring your favorite tools or supplies if you have them. Firing of the art is the
responsibility of the student, and/or you may work with the instructor outside of the workshop for
