Plate Painting Workshop with Kendra Harvey

free

Diversify your knowledge of artistic mediums and create a beautiful ceramic painting for Bunnell Street Arts Center’s annual Plate Project fundraiser in Plate Painting workshops with Kendra Harvey, on March 2nd and/or 9th, 12 – 5pm at Bunnell.

Learn how to paint ceramic surfaces with artist Kendra Harvey on either Saturday. Harvey demonstrates and instructs how to turn your clay canvas into a masterpiece. Participants will learn how to apply underglazes and glazes using a variety of painting techniques as they decorate their plate for the annual Plate Project. Throughout the workshop, discussions will surround illustrative narratives on functional décor and the unique qualities of ceramic surfaces. All materials needed for the course are included. Participants are also welcome to bring their own tools, such as fine brushes, if they have them. For ages 18 and up.

Kendra Harvey has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics and Painting from the University of Anchorage Alaska. She has years of experience in arts education, having taught ceramics at a university level and worked in non-profit art organizations. Harvey exhibits at Bunnell for the month of March.

With support from Homer Foundation, Alaska Community Foundation and RURAL CAP/Thriving Communities, Bunnell Street Arts Center is pleased to present HEART residencies (Healing and Engagement Through Art) featuring a series of workshops in 2023-2024 to spark joy, health and healing for people living around Kachemak Bay.

Every year dozens of Alaskan artists create unique art plates for Bunnell’s annual fundraiser The Plate Project. The bisqued plates are blank “canvases” for brilliant food-safe underglazes. The finished painted plates are then selected by new and renewing members in thanks for $125-$1000 donations. The Plate Project has been Bunnell’s keystone fundraiser and celebrates its 30th year in 2024. Learn more at https://www.bunnellarts.org/plate-project/
