Prerequisite:ART 2200; or permission of the division chair
This course is designed for the student who wishes to utilize ceramic media to create three-dimensional forms. A variety of basic ceramic sculpture techniques will be explored and used to express both representational and nonrepresentational ideas. The research of historic and contemporary trends in ceramic sculpture will be studied to develop background knowledge and enhance technical skill. Sculptures will be fired with appropriate surface finishes to accentuate the aesthetic nature of each piece. Individual attention will be given to each student to encourage them to produce unique works of art that relate to their life experiences. Finally, students will be afforded the opportunity to apply the knowledge of techniques and concepts introduced in this class to an in-depth study of a form-based or a concept-based theme.
