ADVANCED CLAY TECHNIQUES with Jessica Ramage

THURSDAYS 4:00-6:00 PM

This course is designed for teens looking to take their knowledge and skills in clay to the next level. Throughout this course, students will be introduced to various ceramic artists from various time periods and corners of the globe.  These artists will be used as an influence for student work. With this, students will begin to understand core clay theory and art history, while honing hand-building, wheel-throwing and glazing techniques. Learn studio skills like making slip, mixing glazes, loading and unloading kilns and firing kilns.  Students will participate in class critiques as they work together, discuss each other’s work and support one another’s growth.  Optional field trips will be scheduled. Students must apply to this specialized program.  Application requirements listed below.
