Chari Bolaños and Pottery and Ceramics students at the Art School in Seville
The Art School in Seville, the old Applied Arts School, is a training center of a great value for the artisan sector of Seville, and Andalusia in general. Its students are prepared to be ceramists, potters, cabinet makers, photographers, decorators, among others. They also continue their training at the Faculty of Fine Arts. This group of students is special for a project that focuses on entrepreneurship, as in the case of INTREPIDA. At the end of their studies, many of these students will open their own workshop or they will associate in cooperatives. Therefore, the meeting with the ceramist and entrepreneur Chari Bolaños will serve to illustrate an experience for which many of these students will live once the formal training is finished.
This meeting will be held on March 9, 2018 from 5.30 pm in the auditorium that the School has in the old Chilean Pavilion of the 29th Exhibition. That same day, the entrance hall will host an exhibition of pieces made by the ceramist.
