Conversations on Life & Art

James Watkins Art 4During his residency, visitors and staff enjoyed hearing James talk about art and his life as an artist and teacher. He covered many things, including the people and opportunities that have influenced him and the reasons he is drawn to working with clay.

James is a natural storyteller and people loved listening to his stories. We taped a conversation with him so people who weren't able to meet James in person could have a similar opportunity. On this page, you can hear James answer the question "Why clay?"

On page 2: Hear James talk about some of his influences and his ideas about developing as an artist and learning from art.
