Ceramic Arts Courses – Beginning with Ceramics 1A & 1B – in the first year students study three basic hand building techniques and are introduced to throwing on the potters’ wheel. Additionally the history of human artistic development through pottery, its’ functions and forms and meanings are explored as a basis for personal self-expression. Second year students - 2A & 2B, further develop their physical skills and are challenged to develop a personal aesthetic they can use to express their own creative ideals.
