In the introduction to ceramics, students will be learning the basics of hand build objects out of clay. They will learn the additive process to building with clay, and they will learn the subtractive process to carving plaster of Paris.
This class will go over the clay sculpting kit and how to use the tools. Students will be shown demonstrations on a step-by-step process and then they will go off to work on their assignments with assistance if needed.
Students are advised that to get at least 3 projects completed in this 8-week class they must take their projects home and work on them in between classes. Homework is due to the labor intensive process and the drying time of clay. Dress for a mess most stains are not permanent to clothes but you will get dirty.
Last class includes a potluck & semi-formal critique on each student’s body of work. No prior art experience required.
*Note: there are no kilns in studio to fire ceramic projects. Students will be advised where to locally take their clay for firing & glazing to completion. The instructor will accompany the class on the day that they schedule to glaze their projects.
