Draw It Like You Throw It with Erik Scollon
Free with museum admission ($5 after 5 PM)
potter throws on the potter's wheel the form slowly emerges through a series of
small adjustments. This is unlike drawing, which can quickly find the outline
of a form. Bay Area ceramist Erik Scollon will lead you through a meditative
drawing exercise, akin to the gradual approach to finding form used by potters.
Join the artist as he discusses ceramic works in the galleries and leads
participants through a study of form.
