ART-235 Ceramics II


Credits: 3
Contact Hours: Lab 6
Tier Rate: Tier I
This course is a study of the intermediate principles of ceramics and ceramic sculpture with emphasis on wheel thrown techniques and altered works. The main focus of Ceramics II is the investigation of vessel or pottery making, primarily functional, but adding sculptural aspects as well. The various processes of working in clay including firing a kiln, glazing and remixing clay will be explored. Students will continue to learn the skills needed for traditional hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques as well as non-traditional approaches to ceramics. Alternative firing techniques will be covered. Prerequisite(s): Grade of "C" or better in ART 116  or concurrent enrollment, and ART 135 .
