Beginning Ceramics

Transform a lump of clay into a piece of art! Using basic wheel-throwing and hand-building methods, learn to create cups, bowls, boxes, and more. Individualized instruction and demonstrations of the technical underpinnings will give you a strong foundation in the ceramic arts. This course is intended for beginner students new to ceramics. Students may repeat for up to four quarters; students with four or more quarters of any level of ceramics will not be permitted to join. See Textbook and Supply List for supply list. Students who take this class are invited to participate in our Summer CE Student Art Show.
