Students in Ceramics will learn the basics of hand-building as well as learning all about the physical properties of creating vessel forms with clay. Students will learn techniques with pinch, coil and slab in this semester class. Form and design will be emphasized and students will learn the entire process of creating a ceramic from workable plastic clay to a finished-fired glazed piece.
Projects and Concepts
If there is time left in the semsester, students will be given the opportunity to do an independent project. Students will choose their subject and medium. This is the chance to expand upon past knowledge and really challenge creativity. It will also be good practice for those students that will be enrolling in Advanced art.
