ART 317: Advanced Ceramics

Class Program
Credits 3
This course builds on the hand-building techniques learned in beginning ceramics. This course focuses on improving the student's ability to work and create with clay. This increase in student's technical skill set will further push student ideas, concepts and abilities. Concept development and execution with clay is the underlying theme of this class. Practical working limits of clay will be discussed and examined. Challenging the clay through technique and process is the main theme of the advanced ceramic course. Student projects/pieces will be fully developed and well thought out before attempting fabrication in clay. Firing techniques will be discussed to further student knowledge of the ceramic process. A sketch book is required to develop ideas and concepts and serve as a reference point/map for the student's work.
