GED 623 - Ceramics for Educators

This course invites educators to engage in the art of ceramics. Our hands-on experience is designed for you to develop wheel-working and hand-building skills while building a foundation for the rich cultural, historic, and aesthetic qualities of clay. On the wheel, we will explore the skills of creating functional pottery introducing all the essential stages starting from the elements of clay to wet clay through glazing. In hand-building we will explore the varied strategies and tools to build with clay. You will be exposed to different firing and glazing techniques. Individually, participants will create lesson plans that link directly to their curriculum and corresponding Vermont Standards and GLE’s and become part of a portfolio of work in clay. Those with or without ceramic experience are welcome.

Credits: 3 cr.

Miscellaneous Notes:
A materials fee may be due upon registration.
