COURSE DESCRIPTION

Ceramics II
Grades 10-12
1 credit
Prerequisite: Ceramics I

Students taking Ceramics II engage in individualized learning experiences that encompass art history, art criticism, aesthetics, and art production that lead to the creation of high quality clay works of art. The class is very student driven with students choosing what type of projects they would like to do and propose them to the teacher before production takes place while also making a ceramic table top and chess set. In addition to students experimenting with a wide range of ceramic techniques (which include slab, coil, drape mold, slip cast, and wheel projects), they will reflect upon the outcomes of those experiences, explore historical connections, and find direct correlation to other disciplines.
