This course is designed to give students an opportunity to concentrate in hand-built pottery, wheel pottery, or sculpture.  Students will be expected to perform at an advanced level and begin developing an individual style.  Students will become acquainted with the work of famous sculptures from the 20th century 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 will begin to build a portfolio and may be responsible for organizing a group art show featuring their own work.
