Alex Lanham is available for Portraiture on Tile, Mosaics and Ceramics Artist Residencies. The Portraiture on Tile and Mosaics projects include drawing lessons in portraiture, as well as color theory, design, and landscape. For tile projects that are permanently installed at a school, students also make a tile to take home. When a school chooses clay construction, students learn pinch pot, slab pot, and coil pot techniques, as well as 3D sculptural and glazing methods. All students create a treasure they can take home.
