Prerequisite: Introduction to 2D and Introduction to 3D Art.
Students in Ceramics engage in sequential learning experiences that encompass art criticism, aesthetics, and production and lead to the creation of portfolio quality works. Students create works of art in clay utilizing the processes of hand building, molds, slip and glaze techniques, and the firing process. They reflect upon and refine their work while exploring cultural and historical connections. They will also analyze, interpret, theorize, and make informed judgments about artwork and the nature of art. Students in this course need to be self-motivated to work independently on assigned projects. Students will use problem-solving, critical thinking, and divergent thinking strategies to bring out their ideas for their projects.
