The process of making artwork will be the major focus of the class. This studio class is designed to support the development of the creative process in ceramics with an understanding lending itself to all forms of art making in ceramics. Projects will be conceptually based requiring investigation on an individual level. Issues to be raised in this class will include functional and sculptural forms relating to historical and contemporary ceramics. There will be emphasis on the artist as one participating in a larger cultural context. Each student will be required to give a presentation on issues of interest to them in the arts and its relationship to their own work in development during this class. Senior students will also complete written statements about their work and began to learn how to put together a portfolio of visual material.
