Course Description:This class is a forum for experimentation with contemporary art methods of ceramic sculpture, mixed media, and installation, including site-specific work. The focus will be on the pragmatic aspects of creating interdisciplinary work on a fixed schedule: prioritizing tasks, meeting deadlines, selecting materials, anticipating and finding solutions for problems, as well as employing a fluid work flow between two and three dimensions and other media such as sound and performance. For those who choose to participate, there is an outdoor exhibition opportunity as part of an established annual sculpture walk at the end of the summer. A variety of skills will be covered, including sculptural clay and hand building, images on clay, alternate materials to clay, and skills related to navigating the world outside the studio. (9 classes/10 weeks).... Read more about Get It Done! Interdisciplinary Projects
Dates: June 6 - August 8* Days/Times: Thursdays, 10:00am - 1:00pm Level: Intermediate - Advanced Instructor: Zac Mickelson
Course Description: This class format focuses on breaking old habits and considering new directions to take our work including utility, form and surface. There are three, three-week cycles to this 9-week class. For two weeks, students, with the guidance of the instructor will “explore” through experimentation with different forms. The third week, the group comes together to “refine” through critique intended to refine our ideas. This format is then repeated two more times. Though this class does focus primarily on the wheel, hand builders are welcome! Class demonstrations will be given based on student input with the remainder of the class being one-on-one help. (9 classes/10 weeks) *Note: No classes on Thursday, July 4th for Indepdence Day!
