ART 131 - Introduction to Ceramics


As an introduction to contemporary ceramic practices, this class will explore techniques and applications for hand-building and wheel-throwing. Both techniques have a long and fascinating history of use around the world and combined in the work of contemporary artists. The class will explore utilitarian and non-utilitarian forms. Lectures, demonstrations, readings, field trips to local exhibitions and museums introduce the basic concepts of design, aesthetics and creative development of clay objects examining culture, historical and personal modes of expression. Emphasis is on individual expression through creative problem solving. $100 materials fee required. Offered every semester. (4 Credits)
