Clay Sculpture Demo Offered With Local Artist Bob Fazio On Saturday At Area 61 Gallery

  • Monday, February 19, 2024
Stop by Area 61 Gallery for a Clay Sculpture Demonstration with Chattanooga favorite, Bob Fazio, on Saturday, from 1-5 p.m.
 
Mr. Fazio was a career educator, so he is a natural when demonstrating his techniques at sharing the process with the viewer. Bring your curiosity and questions and drop-in between 1-5 p.m. to see what emerges from the clay.

From 1980 to 2008 Mr. Fazio taught studio art to young people at Baylor School where they learned to draw, compose visual information, and to see their world in a new way.
 
A native of New Jersey, but a long-time resident of Chattanooga, he also taught at Notre Dame High School, U.T.C., and The Hunter Museum.
He is retired from education. His specialty is in the field of ceramic clay sculpture and pottery production, but he found himself teaching all levels of drawing and color theory as well.
 
Mr. Fazio has always believed that all humans have a natural ability to be creative and his work as an art instructor was to channel and form that creative potential.
 
Mr. Fazio is married to Beverly Diane Boyd. They have three adult children and five grandchildren.
