Clay date

ARTWORK BY STEPHAN JUEL

Clay date

Sculptor Stephan Juel of Dancing Dog Clayworks in Cambria believes that art can be both work and play, and that his best work stems from the latter. You can get in on the fun with a demonstration in clay led by Juel at the Atascadero Gospel Church, on April 14 at 7 p.m. Juel does both sculptural and functional pieces and often incorporates animals and letters into his work. Atascadero Gospel Church is located at 8205 Curbaril. For more info, call Charlene at 239-2642.
