**This course is open to those who identify as black, indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC)**
Come get down and dirty while learning to make functional and sculptural forms on the potter’s wheel! In this course, students will learn how to use the potter’s wheel to create cups, bowls, plates, vases, and pouring vessels. Students will practice throwing, trimming, making handles and spouts, and finishing and firing their pieces. Students will experience clay both as a functional building material and as an expressive medium. Color and texture will be explored through a variety of slips and glazes. The instructor will lead demonstrations to give students more ideas as to what type of forms they might pursue. Students will also be exposed to the creative thought processes behind intellectual and intuitive decisions in ceramics.
Each week, a new technique will be demonstrated, and a new artist’s artwork will be presented to ignite your imagination! No previous ceramics experience necessary—this class is open to all levels. Students will receive a complimentary 25-pound bag of cone 6 clay but may need to purchase additional clay for their personal projects. All other materials and tools will be provided. Enrollment in this course includes additional access to one monitored Open Studio session per week.
Unfinished student work should be picked up within two weeks of the last class.
