Rising 6th through rising 12th graders
In this class, we will explore ceramic processes from the ancient to the contemporary. We will experiment with traditional coil-built vases and modern throwing techniques on the pottery wheel. Students will create a variety of functional vessels such as bowls, plates, mugs, and pitchers while considering the aesthetic relationship between form and function. On a case-by-case basis, some of our more experienced students will be encouraged to create artwork for their International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) portfolios. Daily personalized instruction will help facilitate artistic growth and weekly group critiques will showcase the collective progress of student work.
Please note: Pottery forms require multiple weeks for drying, bisque firing, and glaze firing. It is recommended that students participate in several sequential weekly sessions in order to experience the entire ceramic process.
