Participants will examine contemporary and historical ceramics and use this knowledge to practice various handbuilding and surface treatment techniques to develop an original body of work. In addition to studio practice, course participants are required to engage with real-world classroom scenarios, troubleshoot supply management, studio procedures, and art room organization to facilitate the effective implementation of a ceramics curriculum.
