Introduction to Ceramic and Mixed Media Sculpture

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 to Thursday, May 17, 2018

6-8 PM

Entergy Classroom

Ages 16+
Cost: $60
Class limit: 15

Students will be introduced to ceramic and mixed media sculpture projects during this three-day evening class. Guided by art educator McKenzie Drake, each class will begin with a short conversation about a work of art in the Museum’s bicentennial exhibition, Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017: Land of Plenty, Pain, and Promise, followed by studio activities that will allow for personal reflection and response. On Thursday, feel free to come early and stay late for Third Thursday food and activities as we conclude the class. No experience necessary.

About the Instructor:
Born and raised in North Carolina, McKenzie Drake is no foreigner to sweet tea and the all-inclusive "y'all." After graduating from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2017 with a BA in Art and Political Science, McKenzie enjoys inspiring others to think creatively in and out of the studio. Her art has been featured in multiple group juried exhibitions, community-based events, and is featured in the Rhodes College permanent collection. She now continues her practice as the William R. Hollingsworth Fellow at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, Mississippi, where she leads family and studio programming.
