ARTH 360 Advanced Ceramics
This class is centered on strengthening technical, research, and personal project development skills to further each students individual studio practice. We will focus on self-directed projects (utilitarian and sculptural), and consider how we display and install our finished projects. Individual and group discussions will be integral, as well as frequent one on one meetings. Through readings and class discussions that focus on established art theory and contemporary artists and critics in the field, we will gain fluency in speaking about your and others art.
