Local artist John Simmons will demonstrate the art of ceramics during the class. Students will choose to create a mug, bowl, or box following the demonstration, with guidance from Simmons as they work. The pieces will then be glaze-fired and returned to students.
John Simmons is a painter and potter who holds a BA from Berea College and an MA from Louisiana State University. He is currently assistant professor of art at Lee University in Cleveland, TN, and directs an Arts & Humanities trip to Italy every summer for Lee students.
