3DCR213 Drawing in and on Clay 3cr.
Drawing in and on Clay focuses on drawing as a
tool for both two and three dimensionalrepresentation. Classes will be taught
in the Ceramic Studios where emphasis is placed
on observation, experimentation, and technical
exploration along with personal expression.
Employing various tools and techniques, students
explore the relationships of drawing on paper and
clay. Students are given the opportunity to
expand their drawing experience into other
mediums and dimensions.The ceramic medium
challenges artists and designers to draw in
space, to marry ideas in surface, color and form.
Projects include working with drawing as tool for
addressing issues in object making, as well as
exploring drawing in clay as finished artwork.
Work focuses on the sensorial, the formal and the
expressive proprieties of mark making in clay,
which is a wonderfully direct and reactive
medium. Eye hand synchronic and emotional
responds will be used not only to record objects
or events, but make visible the world of our imagination.
Students explore the ceramic process from surface
and form building through to firing work in
electric and gas kilns.
