DESCRIPTION

Montserrat Daubón
Casting in Concrete—Demonstration
September 30
Sunday, 1:00–4:00 pm
Fee: $35
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 15 students

Concrete is an exciting medium for casting sculpture, offering an organic aesthetic quality, greater strength than plaster and durability outdoors.  This demonstration will show how to mix, cast, add structural support to, cure and finish concrete when casting from molds.  Because concrete cures slowly, stages of the process will be demonstrated.  Strategies for achieving the best results, as well as tips for attaining different colors, textures and finishes, will be discussed. 

Montserrat Daubón studied at the Art Students League of New York, the University of Michigan (B.A.) and the University of Texas at Austin (M.P.A.).  She was awarded two Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grants and most recently had a solo show of her landscape paintings at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art in California.
