Calling all painters, drawers, printmakers, and aspiring surface embellishers! This tile decorating workshop is for you. Trade your paper or canvas for some flat 4”x4” clay tiles and learn how to use specialized ceramic materials to reimagine your aesthetics in a new medium. Whether your style is minimalist or maximalist, abstract or realistic, or bright, muted, or monochromatic, discover a versatile range of uncomplicated techniques to bring that style to clay. Explore a mix of different methods each session, including underglaze painting and penciling, sgraffito (scratching), transfers, and resists.    Absolutely no prior ceramics experience needed. Some drawing and/or painting knowledge is helpful but not required. All levels welcome!
