ART 110 Ceramics Workshop

3 hours 

This course is an introduction to ceramics as an art form and mode of communication incorporating concepts from the history and theory of ceramic art. Special attention will be paid to the varying possibilities of clay from the liquid through the solid, the interplay of three dimensional form and surface and the transformation of clay into ceramic through the firing process. Using this knowledge, students will create artworks that both respond to their research and articulate original ideas. Class time will consist of demonstrations, lectures, field trips, critiques and individual work time.




This course has a $15.00 material fee. This course satisfies the John Jay College Option: Communications area of the Gen Ed Program.
