Fast Figures at CSU Pueblo

On the first weekend of October, Michael Kent Knutson and I had the pleasure of providing a two day workshop and lecture to the marvelous students of Colorado State University in Pueblo, Colorado.

Let me begin by thanking professor Vicky Hansen and her husband Richard for their remarkable hospitality. We were blessed to stay at their compound that they built together in the Early 1970s near Penrose, CO. It’s part living compound, part museum, part pottery. It’s rustic and beautiful. It was quiet and cool and majestic in the morning.

Richard and Vicky were such wonderful hosts. Mikey and I will never forget the rich conversation over a small fire and a good Colorado beer. As successful artists and professors of art, they are an inspiration to fellow artists and students alike.

Our workshop over two days was excellent. Students at CSUP were fantastic. They all made a big pinch pot, a big head, or a thrown figure.

 

On the painting side they saw a great portrait demo, and painted a couple of landscapes. Mikey was planning to take them out for a plein air experience, but the rainy weather kept us inside.
