      Ceramics Tell a Friend!
 
      Shasta College Community Education, in partnership with Tehama County Arts Council, is now offering ceramics classes at the newly renovated Green Room Studio in Downtown Red Bluff (next to the State Theater).

This class will cover all phases of ceramics in lectures, demonstrations, lots of hands-on, and one-to-one teaching techniques.

This class is designed for students who have an interest in working with clay, and gives students experiences in making functional as well as sculptural pieces, using a variety of techniques. Well thought out forms, designs and functional uses along with good craftsmanship are emphasized.

Students will:

  • Create works of art in clay utilizing the processes of hand building using coils and slabs as well as wheel throwing.
  • Glaze their projects, and learn about the method used to fire their works.

    Meet Our Instructor, Palul Rideout - "The need to create is a natural instinct for man," says sculptor Paul (Palul) Rideout. Palul feels fortunate to have found a medium that brings his passions for art and science together. He tries to find and explore those qualities that have a common human appeal, universal ideas and symbols that transcend languages, locations and cultures. Like the clay itself, Palul expects his art to last hundreds of years.

    Some of Palul's high-profile public projects include - The two seven-foot pyramids in the McConnell Gardens and Arboretum. They are meant to uplift the spirit, provoke the mind and relate the physical beauty of our north state to the viewer. Palul has also completed a project at the intoxicatingly beautiful Clear Creek Gorge Overlook along Clear Creek Road. The various stages of the life cycle of salmon are depicted within a nine-foot circle in tile mosaics as part of an interpretive display beneath a small pavilion built by the Western Shasta County Resources Conservation District.

    Please note: the $20 materials fee will cover consumables such as clay, underglaze colorants, glaze chemicals, etc.
