AM: Ceramics 101 Create pottery (objects you can use) while working with both hand building and wheel throwing techniques.   You will create collection of cups, plates and bowls that combine abstraction and functionality.  By incorporating a theme such as gemstones, leaves and vines, or other patterns, you will have a unique collection of objects that you will be proud to show off.   This class will also teach you several new glazing techniques such as scratch through under glazing and stenciling.

PM: Clay Sculpture: Ordinary to Extraordinary Create a larger scale sculpture that transforms the ordinary into extraordinary.  You will learn techniques such as abstracting and simplifying forms, using an armature and additive clay processes that will help you to create an impressive sculpture that will morph one object into another.  Riffing off Surrealism and Post-Modernism, you will transform food, machinery, or natural forms like gemstones into a different kind of object.
