Here are some new works off the chopping block in pottery classes at LHS. Each student researched an American tribe (ancient or contemporary) and incorporated the essentials from their designs into one of our own.
Vice Principal Mr. Hoffman visited the pottery room last Thursday during 6th hour and practiced his wheel throwing skills. He said it was fun, calming, and messy!
Lee Harris and her team have represented the United States for two years running at the Winnipeg, Manitoba snow sculpting festival. She will be working with LHS pottery students next week speaking about her life as an artist and how she accomplishes the beautiful artwork shown here. We are excited and busy getting ready for her visit next Tuesday and will be doing some snow sculptures of our own! More pictures to come.
Spokane Washington Artist Liz Bishop will be visiting the Pottery Studio at Lakeland High School tomorrow, 11/16. We are so excited to host her at the school. We’ll be learning about her raku, ceramic, glass and copper fused artworks as well as her philosophies of working on the wheel. We no doubt expect it to be an inspiring experience as LHS students begin their own work on the potters wheel later this month.
When students get to meet real artists in our community it enriches and inspires them. Be a guest artist at LHS this year! Benefit from sharing your work with us. Here are some photos of last year’s guest Otis Bardwell, a professor from North Idaho College. Here is what Otis had to say about his experience:
“I really enjoyed my visit last year. Your students were very attentive and engaged. Additionally, it is a sincere pleasure to have Lauren Grove, one of your students in the workshop, as my student this year; that kind of long-term corollary makes the experience especially meaningful.” -Otis Bardwell
