Designed to give students an opportunity to concentrate in hand-built sculpture and wheel-thrown pottery. Students will be expected to perform at an advanced level and develop an individual style. Students will become acquainted with works from master artists and make informed responses to works of art, nature, and other objects by using objective criteria for analysis, interpretation, and judgment. Technically, students will refine their abilities to apply design elements and principles in wheel throwing, hand building, and glazing techniques. Students may be required to build a portfolio and be responsible for organizing art shows featuring their own work and will write a research paper. Attendance of student art shows outside of class may be required. There are material costs associated with projects in this course. The instructor will give you specific information within the first week of the course. May repeat for credit.
