Drawing & Painting
Pottery

The Pottery class focuses on:

  • Hand-building

  • Wheel-throwing

  • Sculpting

  • Slab rolling

  • Glazing

 

     Pottery takes two weeks to dry, and then it is fired, glazed, and fired a second time. The entire process takes four weeks to complete. Projects created on the final day of class will be dip-glazed and may be picked up at a later date.

 

   Below are a few of the projects we may create. Artists often create more than one version of the same subject, either altering or embellishing the piece to make it unique. Students who have taken this class previously will not be repeating lessons and will be challenged to add to their existing knowledge and skills.

 

Pottery Projects include:

  • Wheel-thrown cups, bowls, vases, and mugs

  • Hand-built birdhouse

  • Fish, dolphin, and whale sculptures

  • Dog sculpture

  • Hand-built coffee mug

  • Sculpted roses & flowers

  • Bowl from pinch pot

  • Decorative box with lid

  • Cylinder pencil holder

  • The Elements of Art, including Color Theory (line, color, shape, form, space, value, and texture)

  • The Principles of Design (balance, unity, movement, pattern, repetition, emphasis, and contrast)
