Payson Art League Hosts Sculptor Dennis Weber


Payson Art League’s Aug. 16 meeting features a demonstration by Dennis Weber, who does sculptures out of “paper clay.” This relatively new medium is a blend of ceramic clay and paper, which dries extremely hard and can be fired or not, and enhanced with paint or other innovative finishes.
