Clay Studio I
Visual and Performing Arts

This is an introductory level course focusing on the major methods of working with clay, including hand building, coil, slab and wheel throwing techniques. Looking at examples of pottery from many cultures, including contem- porary potters, students will develop a vocabulary of techniques to create their own body of work. Various glazing and firing techniques will be explored. Guest artists, homework assignments, self-evaluation and peer evaluation will supplement studio work. Students should expect to spend time beyond the designated class period to complete projects.
