ARTS 276

Bigger, Better Ceramics

In this course, students will learn how to construct large forms out of clay using hand building and throwing techniques. Although many ceramic objects reside in the realm of the handheld, this course will cover numerous strategies that can be used to tackle the challenges associated with large-scale work. These techniques can be employed to greatly expand the potential of working with ceramic materials. In addition to working on large-scale ceramic projects, this course will engage students in the various aspects of studio art practice such as concept development, problem solving, materials testing, visual literacy and critical thinking. Course may be taken or repeated at the 300 level with advanced expectations and consent of instructor. Not offered pass/fail.
