Do you aspire to be a potter? We will be working either on the potter’s wheel, or using hand-build methods to create. These methods will include pinching, coiling, and slab form techniques. Students will create functional and non-functional pottery using stoneware and porcelain clays. The firing will be done using the electric and gas kilns. Glazing will be done twice during the six weeks. The glazing will be completed using the dipping, pouring, and brushing methods with stoneware glazes.
Instructor Fred Figueroa taught ceramics for forty-two years in the art department at the high school and middle school levels at CUSD, before retiring in 2014! And now he wants to share his talents and knowledge with you! The first night of class, a supply list will be distributed, and we will begin creating your wonderful works of art.
