Stearns currently teaches art at Doane College, creating curriculum and lessons that develop creative thinking, problem solving, skill sets and critical evaluation of quality and learning experience, according to Wava Best of North Platte’s Creativity Unlimited arts council.

Stearns was born and raised on a ranch near North Platte.

Stearns will demonstrate ceramic skills on the potters’ wheel along with his method of mathematically piercing the exterior form to create an interest to the interior.

His method gives an ever changing relationship between light and dark, solid and permeable, smooth and rough to the viewers gaze and sense of touch, Best said.

Stearns received a bachelor’s of arts with professional emphasis in 2003 from Doane College in Crete. Then he opened a studio in North Platte and helped on the family ranch, but decided to commit more fully to his art. He obtained a masters of fine arts degree from Fort Hays State University in 2008.

There is no charge to attend. The presentation is sponsored by the Creativity Unlimited Arts Council.
