Ceramics One will assist students in developing knowledge and understanding of basic hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques that will enable them to create pottery with function and meaning. Hand-building techniques will include pinch, coil, and slab, as well as various additive and subtractive sculptural methods. Students will demonstrate different glazing techniques to achieve desired aesthetic appearance, 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.
