This course will build upon the knowledge and skills gained in Ceramics 1. Students will continue to develop their skills in hand building and wheel throwing. Class exercises and projects will demand that students explore solutions to more complicated and challenging visual problems. Students will demonstrate different glazing techniques to achieve desired appearance and aesthetic, as well as to express their creativity. Weekly class critiques will be conducted. Art History will be discussed daily with a summative exam given at the end of the quarter.
This curriculum will reflect a more open-ended design. Students will be presented with a series of standards and learning targets that they will be expected to meet in order to fulfill the course requirements. Each standard and/or learning target will require a minimum number of artifacts (projects) for completion. Students may select from projects introduced and provided by the instructor, or they may elect to propose alternate projects.
