Take your pots to the next level! This class will allow students to refine and deepen their throwing skills while creating bowls, cups, handles, and eventually lidded forms and pitchers. 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 in various ceramic techniques and will also introduce the ‘how’s’ and ‘why’s’ of glazing. Each week, a new technique will be demonstrated, and a new artist's artwork will be presented to ignite your imagination! This class is appropriate for any student who has previously taken an introductory level ceramics class. Students will receive a complimentary 25 pound bag of cone 6 clay, but may need to purchase additional materials 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; either on Thursday afternoons from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Friday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm, or Sunday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm. Unfinished student work should be picked up within two weeks of last class.
