Drawing and Painting II - More advanced drawing and painting techniques are learned and refined in this course. Students learn about under-painting/layering, drawing self-portraiture/contour lines, using chalk pastel to create a portrait, reflective color, still life drawing/painting, and how art historical periods can influence their own work.
Clay I - Basic hand-building and throwing techniques are learned in this introductory course. Coil and slab techniques are utilized to create large hand-built pieces. Students will spend about half of the semester working on the potters wheel, learning how to throw and trim as well as pull handles. All functional works made by students are food safe!
Clay II - Building off of the techniques learned in Clay I, students will use the potters wheel to create additional bowls and mugs, sectional vases, and lidded jars. Hand-building will yield a teapot and self-portrait bust utilizing slab and coil techniques.
