Ian F. Thomas spent his formative years in the foothills of Western Pennsylvania on family farm ground. He earned his BFA in Ceramic and Painting studies at Slippery Rock University and an MFA in Ceramics at Texas Tech University where he further explored his interest in sculpture, printmaking and paint while incorporating all of these mediums into his current portfolio. During his time at Slippery Rock, Ian had the opportunity to study abroad at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava Slovakia. Ian had the opportunity to refine his work while studying at The Pottery Workshop Residency in Jindezhen, China for six weeks in the summer of 2007. Most recently The Museum of Fine Art in Las Cruses New Mexico has purchased his work for their permanent collection. This past summer he was a Spout Fund Muralist completing a 40x90ft mural in the Strip District, Pittsburgh, PA.
During the May 1st and 2nd workshop, Ian will be showing three mural techniques: Projection, Grid, and Rasterized Images. We’ll be painting in the racquetball court which is currently being used for afterschool programming.
Registration is limited to the first 20 people to sign up.
