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.
