Available to: all students

Schedule: one semester

Special notes: This semester-long course must be paired with another arts course before graduation in order to fulfill Stevenson’s diploma requirement. To fulfill the “f” arts admissions requirement for the UC and Cal State schools, the second course should also be in the visual arts discipline.

This course introduces fundamental techniques behind ceramics and clay sculpture, including the potter’s wheel, glazing, firing, chemical properties and recycling of clay, and the process of bringing a piece from concept to completion.
Students have studio time, along with teacher demonstrations, to practice and develop technical skills to grow their creative expression. Through class critiques, students evaluate their work and analyze the work of others.
