Thursday evening there’s a really cool event happening on Charleston’s East End that any area sculptors might want to attend.

RJ Haddy’s Rad FX Atelier is hosting a fundraiser to help with the cost associated with replacing the building’s old HVAC system before other code upgrades can be completed. What he’s doing is holding a sort of sculpting version of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art show, only without any models.

This event is not a structured class, this is a freestyle fun casual evening for folks to practice sculpture skills, chill out with good friends while making new ones, listening to some good music, enjoying some good wine (21+ only please B.Y.O.B.) all while making some good art.

A donation of $50 gets you in the door and all proceeds go towards replacing the HVAC system. In return, attendees get the following:
Entrance to the party
Cheese and fruit trays, along with other snacks
Soft drinks
ALSO…The first 25 (or so) people through the door will also get a small sculpture package of:
1.5 lbs of WED clay
1- sculpture base
1- package of wire

Doors open at 6:30 PM, so get there early otherwise, its B.Y.O.C (Bring Your Own Clay). Your use of Atelier sculpture tools and other supplies needed for the process will be made available for use during the event, plus Rj will be on hand sculpting his own project (and drinking) alongside you to answer any questions.

This sounds like a lot of fun, and if your PopCulteer can get over his obnoxious cough by then, I’m going to try to make it. I need to work on my 1/6 scale sculpting skills now that my fingers work again.
