During this hour and a half online master class, Thomas Lucas and Roberto Lugo will experiment with drawing and printing images on clay using a range of techniques, such as screen printing, relief, and lithography. They will discuss how to develop images and text and how to apply them to ceramic tiles, vessels, and sculpture and will demonstrate some overglazing techniques. These forms serve as platforms for the public voice, social activism, with strong influences rooted in hip hop, poetry, history, and politics.
