    COURSE OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTATIONS:

    In this course, instruction will be given across all making methods. Hand-forming techniques – pinch, coil, slab – are emphasized. These making methods are incredibly flexible –to be used for you to make (just about) anything you can imagine! Clay is a mimic, it can take shape, texture, color and surface. It could look like plastic, leather, metal, wood, or, believe it or not, clay. This class is designed to familiarize you with all the possibilities of the material and provide a rudimentary understanding of the technicalities of the personality of clay. Assignments will address historical precedent, personal expression and technical development. Working in clay is more that the making of objects. Students will participate in kiln loading, maintenance and firings.
