Take matter into your own hands . . .  learn how to make pottery and sculpture from earth’s clay! Discover the magic of fire, as it turns mud into stone with temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, (think molten lava!). Learn how to coat your creations with beautiful translucent glazes that you’ve mixed yourself from nature’s minerals and oxides.   No prior experience in art or ceramics is required. Demonstrations and slide shows will be an ongoing part of a curriculum presentation which is designed to build a skill base and confidence level that will enable students to explore their own creative interests and potentials.  Students will produce a digitally photographed portfolio of their work, and have the opportunity to show their work in the Dublin Gallery as well.  This course teaches students a functional knowledge and practical mastery of the complex material we call ceramics, and teaches how to integrate this understanding with the creative potential that is not only latent in it, but in all of us as well.  This course may be repeated for elective credit.
