Sculptor Jennifer Frudakis-Petry will lead a workshop through the hands-on step-by-step process of exploring the traditional art of bas-relief sculpture. You will learn to transfer your design onto clay, sculpt the clay into a dimensional drawing, and then prepare if for the kiln firing. The subject matter is your choice. Clay and sculpting tools are provided.
Jennifer Frudakis-Petry has been a sculptor for over 30 years, has taught figurative sculpture for more than 25 years. She has a certificate in sculpture from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and has taken the four-year sculpture program at the Frudakis Academy under EvAngelos W. Frudakis.
Recently, the Frudakis family came to visit HYS and share stories with us. Yellow Springs is very special to the Frudakis family. The Frudakis Academy was run by Jennifer’s father, EvAngelos W. Frudakis and it was EvAngelos who attended the program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He was also a student at the Country School of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts at Chester Springs. Now Jennifer will be teaching here-the family has come full circle in our village!
