2020 Spring Conference

Guest Artist:

Melisa Cadell works as a sculptor and a teaching artist in Western North Carolina. Her sculptural work reads more like a well developed novel, giving the viewer layers of information about a character to discern what might be revealed.  She has taught the figure at Appalachian State University and East Tennessee State University, as well as workshops across the Eastern United States.

This is an opportunity for teaching artists to enjoy a workshop focusing on what the human form houses. Participants will spend 10 hours creating a small clay bust with personal ideas of what defines us.  Building techniques will include slab work and a discussion of facial anatomical structures that help express human emotion.
