Ceramic Projects at THE SIROVICH CENTER
SPARC Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide
Ceramic Workshops for Seniors introduce hand building techniques to create either functional or sculptural projects. Marilyn is known for her humorous creatures, Anne created a Flamenco Dancer. Each project is unique, and speaks to the aesthetics of the individual senior artist. Learning new fabrication techniques is only one facet. Painting and developing the surface detail is done with commercial underglaze colors, added after the bisque firing. A transparent glaze coat finishes the piece.
Workshops at the Sirovich Senior Center in Manhattan were supported by the
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Department of the Aging and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
