AR 211 - Ceramics I


Credits: 4
An introduction to fundamental ceramics technique and history. Clay is one of the oldest materials humans have used to enrich their lives. Students will explore a variety of forming methods including modeling, coil building, slab construction, and wheel throwing. Studio practice will foster a working knowledge of kiln firing (gas and electric) and the formulations of both clay and glazes. Students will study the many cultural traditions of clay, while employing these ancient processes to produce contemporary objects, both functional and sculptural. Demonstrations, group critiques, and weekly lectures will inform the work.
Note(s): (Fulfills artistic inquiry.)
