Gallo will share his sculpting process, from hand-building a figure using solid clay construction to painting the figure realistically after firing. Throughout the immersive, six-day workshop, every participant will be encouraged to develop one small to medium-size figure (15–20” in height). With the help of demonstrations and videos, the workshop will cover all stages of Alessandro's process including: • Concept and narrative • Hand-building a solid piece using a pipe armature • Roughing in clay, identifying main shapes, planes and volumes • Defining progressively the piece in all its parts • Cutting the solid piece in sections • Hollowing and reassembling • Firing and Post-firing, glues and tools • Painting and finishing techniques

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.
Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
