The curriculum in Ceramics 4 is designed to challenge advanced students in ceramics to synthesize their knowledge of art history, ceramics techniques, and an intentional use of principles of design and elements of art into a thought-provoking, personal, and highly detailed portfolio. Students will continue to develop their skills in both hand-building and throwing on the wheel in order to create art pieces that exhibit a high level of professionalism, intricacy, while communicating a unique message to others. Ongoing formal and informal critiques focused on aesthetics will occur throughout the class, along with student-guided assessments. Students will use the work of both contemporary and historical artists to inspire and influence their work.
**An art fee is required.
