COURSE DESCRIPTION
Welcome to the world of clay!!! Each week you will learn and build on techniques for working with clay that incorporate the fundamentals of studio practices. Pinching, slab and coil building, wheel throwing, and more will be just a few of the construction techniques we will cover. Every class will begin with a hand-building or wheel throwing demonstration or surface embellishment technique sure to bring voice to your work. Students will learn the surface decoration using sgraffito, mishima, carving, and a host of other approaches. This class is hands on and great for students who want to try a little bit of everything! Come prepared to get dirty and make work. All 6 week classes come with 6 hours of free studio time outside of class so you can practice what you are learning.
