Students will develop a basic knowledge of handbuilding, wheel throwing, glazes, the properties of clay, and the firing process. Students will purposefully apply the elements of visual art and principles of design to their work. Other areas of emphasis will be studio habits, journaling, and art history.
Student and teacher will work together to create an environment of respect and creativity. Students are encouraged to explore their own path in the creative process. Each student will develop a solid foundation in design, technique, and artist habits so that they will be better able to communicate their voice and style.
