Join local legend James DeRosso in making clay monsters faster than he ran the mile at The Dalles High School. In 90 minutes he will guide you through making your own little creature of disgust. Ages 7 to 107 are welcome. All the supplies and tools are provided, including staining and glazing and firing. Grunts and growls are complimentary.
Instructor Bio: James DeRosso started working with clay in Junior High art class in The Dalles, Oregon. Ms. Orr introduced me to clay and it’s been a part of my life ever since. I received my college degree in Graphic Design, but had spent a great deal of my art electives in the ceramic studio. After college, I started working in advertising but ceramics is what I would be doing at night on my own time. The specific niche of creating monsters all began when I would make small guardian creatures that I placed on top of the kiln to ward off bad results during firings.
