Ceramic Art Guild

The Ceramic Art Guild is a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) at the University of Wyoming that provides a structure where students interested in ceramics work together to raise funding to offset travel expenses to the annual NCECA (National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts) conference.  The NCECA conference is an invaluable experience for all interested in ceramic art.  Throughout the fall and part of the spring semesters, students make unique pieces that are auctioned during the Annual Benefit Silent Auction and sold at the spring Cup and Bowl sale.

For more information on The Ceramic Art Guild:

Please contact Margaret Haydon at mkhaydon@uwyo.edu for more information.

 

Student Art League

The Student Art league is made up of a group of students interested in supporting art-producing and learning activities.  As a recognized group of the ASUW (Associated Students of the University of Wyoming) they plan events such as a Paper fashion show, the Salon des Refuses for students who are rejected from the official Juried Student Show sponsored by the University of Wyoming Art Museum, as well as finding venues to show their work. SAL, as it is affectionately called, works hard to be the voice of all art students and provide opportunities such as visits to Denver, getting to know you recreational activities, and peer critique sessions.

 

Student Art League Meetings

Every Tuesday at 7:00p.m. during the school year.

For more information on Student Art League please contact SAL President, Ryan Parker.


 

Croquis

The term "Croquis" is a French term meaning "sketch".  It is often used to describe short quick drawings done from a live model.

The Croquis sessions at the University of Wyoming are run by students and usually meet once a week in Room 250 of the new Visual Arts Building.  The sessions allow for both long and short poses and offer students a time outside of class to work from a live nude model.

 

Current meeting times and costs are:

Wednesdays from 7 - 9 p.m.

VA 250

Attendance is free, but donations are suggested and highly appreciated!

Wyoming Sculpture Society

Wyoming Sculpture Society is holding meetings every Monday evening @ 7 p.m. in the sculpture studios within the new Visual Arts Building.  Everyone and anyone is welcome, regardless of major and/or expertise.  The WSS was created in the spring of 2011 and fosters the experimentation and art-making practices associated with working three-dimensionally in a variety of materials and processes.  The club has studio work days and dinner cookouts.  Trips are planned that allow students to participate in sculpture activities including regional and national iron pours, conferences, and practicing artist studio visits.  Hard work is encouraged and fun is facilitated.
