One of the many wonderful aspects of visual art is that it has so many disciplines. That variety is often one of the reasons it attracted us as educators, but when we are counted on to provide instruction for all the myriad types of art, there is a danger of becoming a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. The Art of Education University’s studio courses are designed to help you develop in mediums that you are unfamiliar with or want to get better at. For many disciplines, art teachers haven’t studied them seriously since college. Now, you are the art teacher in a classroom. You have no pottery wheels, a limited budget, and students are so excited to play with clay that it’s hard to know where to start.
Through this course, you will fill in all the gaps between what you learned in college and how that applies to the art room. You will also experiment with hands-on, advanced ceramics techniques such as using slips and underglazes, unique texture treatments and advanced hand-building techniques and make historical and interdisciplinary connections.
Think of this class as a studio methods course just for art teachers. You will try out the techniques and processes for yourself. As you create useful tools and finished pieces for the classroom, you will also learn how to break ceramics skills down for your students in a developmentally appropriate way and revamp your ceramics curriculum from the inside out!
To complete this course you will need some basic ceramics tools and supplies, many of which you most likely already own. You will NOT need a kiln to take this class. View the materials list for this course.
A sample assignment from Week 3 of the class “Studio: Ceramics.”
"I like the 8 week course, and everything is due on the same day every week. I also loved that no matter if you were a novice or amateur the weekly subjects were open ended to apply your level to it."
"The material was well presented, enabling me to work confidently on my own. I enjoyed the feedback from both the instructor and my peers. The course expectations were clear and consistent from week to week, and the course platform was simple to navigate."
"It was shockingly helpful to me, even with all my years of experience I learned new techniques and enjoyed the discussions with other teachers."
