Instructor: Dale Prochnow
Sculptor, ceramicist, author, painter, teacher, inventor, graphic designer, and gardener: Dale Prochnow is an artist who can’t sit still. “I used to focus my attention on one idea at a time,” he says. “Now, while I’m in the process of finishing one project, completely unrelated concepts elbow their way into my mind, at times making it difficult to concentrate.”
“Take ceramics, for example. Every Saturday, you will find me behind a potting wheel in the Irvine Fine Arts Center, but all the while I may be thinking about how to make it easier for my new sculpture students to grasp a particular concept, or how to create a unique poster design for an upcoming performance by the Camerata of Los Angeles, or even how to make my website better.”
“My energy is always focused on the most appealing idea of the moment, but I’m forever drawing and doodling. One day I began to take a new look at my lunch plate. Now I have dozens of food-art illustrations and am thinking of publishing a book entitled, ‘Don’t play with your food!’”
