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.
