Course Description: 

In this introductory clay class, students will learn all the fundamental skills needed to create three- dimensional forms in clay using a variety of methods: wheel throwing, handbuilding (such as coil building and slab construction), and press molding.  Whether creating utilitarian forms or creating sculpture, projects are designed to strengthen both craftsmanship and individual creativity.  In addition to developing a working knowledge of the ceramic process, including surface treatments and glazing, students will also be introduced to design issues as well as contemporary art/ceramics topics that influence our aesthetic sensibilities.  No prerequisites.
