Milan Tarascas, who studied at Slade School, graduated in 2018. He currently lives and works in London. As a sculptor and musician, he moves freely between different aspects of production relative to sound, performance, and sculpture. He works internationally creating artworks and workshop events where participants are welcomed to become part of a landscape of incidences using clay as the central force and medium.
It was a great opportunity to come and present a workshop at Léman International School and work with the grade one students. The focus of this project was for each student to learn how to create a ceramic ocarina that they would play in a group performance. Every time he does these kinds of workshops, he is always amazed by the outcomes the students produce, especially this group in particular because of their experience they already had using clay with Mr. Andre in the art department. Big thanks to the grade one teachers, Ms. Edwards and Miss Woods, who had the vision to make this happen as part of their Sensational IPC Unit. He thinks the project was especially strong because it was linked to exploring the topic.
