Dates: September 3 - November 19 Days/Times: Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9:30pm Level: Beginner - Advanced Instructor: Anne Eder and Kyle Johns
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 will be a public exhibition opportunity at the end of the course. 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. (12 classes/14 weeks).... Read more about Get It Done! Interdisciplinary Projects
Dates: September 5 - November 21 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 - including a soda firing! There are four, three-week cycles to this 12-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 three 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. (12 classes/14 weeks)
