ART 2750C - Ceramics: Hand Building

2 hours Lecture, 2 hours Lab, 3 credits
Lower-Division College Credit
AA Elective: Yes
This course provides an introduction to basic hand-building techniques in the production of ceramics. Using low-fire clay, the student practices a wide range of construction techniques such as pinch, coil, slab, and basic mold forming to produce both functional and sculptural forms. This class also covers firing with kilns, a number of glazing techniques, and the use of other surface decoration methods for low-fire surfaces. Emphasis is placed on design, aesthetics, and concept development. The student implements the basic principles of design to two- and three-dimensional forms, uses these concepts to communicate ideas, and develops fundamental fluency in historic and contemporary ceramics.
