In the first term of ceramics, students learn to use a potter's wheel and other methods to create visual ideas and/or pottery in clay that is both sculptural and functional. Forming, glazing and firing are learned in the introductory level, Art 204. Second term students research glaze or clay and continue skill development in Art 304. Advanced students work on developing their own personal styles in Art 304 and 404. Ceramics classes are two-thirds studio, one-third verbal interpretation. ART 202, Ceramics is open to all students and is the prerequisite for more advanced ceramics classes.
