Make Night: Sculpting the Human Form

This two-part workshop, offered in partnership with Baltimore Clayworks, is inspired by the exhibition Rinehart’s Studio: Rough Stone to Living Marble and will provide a contemporary look at sculpting the human figure in clay. Join us on Thursday evening for a tour of  the exhibition and a panel discussion with Clayworks artists Kevin Rohde, Trisha Kyner, and Mary Cloonan about creating ceramic figurative sculptures.  The artists will discuss their technique for constructing clay sculptures, including hollow and solid hand-building methods, armatures, and the firing process.  The following Saturday afternoon, meet at the Clayworks studio in Mt. Washington for a hands-on experience led by resident artist Kevin Rohde. Participants will explore the basics of anatomical study and ceramic techniques. 

Participants should bring an image of a figure to work from. Clay and bisque firing included. 

Registration for this program will fill quickly.  In the event this program is sold out, please  email Hannah Burstein, coordinator of adult programs, at to join the waiting list. We will open more spaces for this workshop as demand increases.
