Ceramics 1 and 2

Welcome to Ceramics 1 and 2 with Mrs. Dorlon

In Ceramics 1 and 2,

This 20-week course explores the 4 aspects of Visual Art: Production, Aesthetics, History/Culture and Criticism. Students will learn how people have used ceramics in their lives, culture and current events for centuries and how the ideals of this search have changed over time. We will explore the work of others with an aesthetic, historical and critical eye. During this course students will be able to create many 3D objects with the use of clay as their primary medium. Students will study ceramics through art history, art aesthetics, art criticism, and art production. The first nine weeks will be devoted to hand building techniques while the second nine weeks will involve wheel throwing. Students will work with other classmates in the process of recycling clay, and will also learn to understand the firing processes involved in making completed projects. After the original structures of the works of art are made, students will glaze items and work with the effects created from the different glaze techniques.
