SRM, LHS Students Attend Ceramic Workshop at SU
Tuesday, November 3, 2015 -
Thirty-six students from Soule Road Middle and Liverpool High School recently traveled to Syracuse University’s Comstock Art Facility where they participated in a one-day ceramic workshop with nationally known ceramicist and SU ceramics professor Margie Hughto.
The students, selected to attend the workshop by SRM art teacher Susan Sapareto and LHS art teacher Emily Dusart, worked in collaboration to create nature-themed relief platters using various clay and color techniques that Hughto shared with them. Through the use of molds, fossils and natural foliage, the students embossed, impressed and texturized their pieces, then applied special color techniques using underglaze to decorate the surface of the piece.
The clay relief platters created during the workshop will be on display at Café 407 (in the village of Liverpool) during the month of March.
