Level 1: Come and get your hands dirty and use your imagination to mold a masterpiece! Clay is an exciting material that can be used to create an infinite variety of three-dimensional objects...from traditional functional items like tea pots and bowls, to funky decorative sculptures. Projects may include creating expressive 3-D portraits, designing your own dinnerware, or creating your own mythical creatures. Also covered will be the basic study of hand building, clay bodies, firing techniques, and the history of ceramic design.
Level 2: Based on course work covered in Ceramics 1, students will explore more advanced techniques in clay work. A demonstration of the potter’s wheel and more advanced decorative glazing and firing techniques will be covered. All production work will reflect research on form, history, technique and related artists.
