The Power of Local | Lillie Turner | Episode 659

Lillie Turner is in love with clay – not a guy named Clay, as her husband’s name is Jeremy, but clay, as in pottery clay. Lillie’s first exposure to pottery was in 2015, at a community club taking 6 nights of wheel throwing classes. Throwing on the wheel did not come easy and is still a struggle somedays to center the clay, pull up the wall, and make pieces that match in shape and size, but she does not give up easily!      The community pottery club in town allowed potters 24 hours access to the studio which was great for a newbie who was very enthusiastic. Many hours were spent at the wheel- but Lillie had a keen interest in learning all aspects of pottery, so she volunteered to load kilns, maintain kilns, which gave her great experience early on. The next big step was to learn about glazes, with … Read the rest

The origin of the perception of rhythm can be traced back to the heartbeat that a child receives in the womb.

It can be said that perceiving rhythm is the ability to master the otherwise invisible dimension, time.

Poster Paint Tips And Tricks

Jackson Pollock, a great American painter of the 20th century, established a distinct way of painting that produced a major impact on the world of art. Drumming is typically a group exercise. The therapist offers various kinds of drums to patients, and they play together with or without accompanying music. The therapist uses drumming to not only get patients involved in their therapy but also to help them engage with each other. Drumming is especially helpful for people who have difficulty communicating in a social situation, such as people with autism. The drum beats give them a way to interact with others on a nonverbal level. Chang, Y.S., Chu, H., Yang, C.Y., Tsai, J.C., Chung, M.H., Liao, Y.M., Chi, M.J., Liu, M.F. & Chou, K.R. (2015).
