Pre-requisite: Studio Art (1/2 year = 1/2 credit)
Ceramics 1 is a course that introduces students to the art of hand-building! We will cover basic methods of clay construction, along with introductory level decorating techniques. Students are encouraged to be creative and unique while applying specific techniques learned. This course prepares all students for ceramics two and 3D Design in which more advanced level projects and processes are explored.
Students will be expected to be responsible for handling tools and materials properly and help with studio responsibilities and upkeep. Working communally is a big part of this class and students will be graded on it. Students will also learn about the equipment and firing processes practiced at PRHS.
