Make the most out of the time away from the Ceramics Program by exploring paper as a sculptural medium. Create paper prototypes out of cut, rolled, folded and assembled paper. Some wet paper techniques such as embossing and papier-mâché will also be introduced. Students will view virtual demos, engage in class discussions, and have group and individual critique sessions.

With your registration, you will receive access to a Harvard Google Classroom which will feature recordings of each class. In the case you miss a class or would like to review, these recordings will be available for 30 days after the end of the course.
