Ceramics Class for students ages 14-18 (starts Oct 3rd)

The Steel Yard is proud to offer our first Community Course specifically
for students ages 14-18.
In Eye of the Beholder, with Claire Wicks, students will learn will
examine our own creative urges to try to figure out what it is that
inspires us. We will be taking a brief look into the long history of
ceramic vessels that were made to impress, to awe, to confuse, and to
celebrate the technical as well as the symbolic meaning of culture. Large
and small in scale, these vessels have been made for millenniums to be
placed in sacred places, in exhibitions, and in homes. Students may work
in hand-building and wheel techniques and will also be exploring various
surface decoration methods. This class will allow students to create a
body of work that exemplifies their own exquisite visions. Class members
will not only focus on expressing themselves through art, but also through
their voices, via regular class and one-on-one discussions. This will be
an exciting experience, so come with an open mind and bring your creative
ideas! No previous ceramics experience necessary—this class is open to all
levels, but is only for students between the ages of 14 and 18. Materials
and tools will be provided. Enrollment in this course includes additional
monitored access to the studio on Sunday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.
