The ceramics course provides an in-depth experience in traditional hand-building ceramic methods. It provides understanding of clay, glaze, and firing procedures and technologies. Students learn ceramic studio health and safety procedures.
The students gain increasing artistic sensibility through knowledge and application of design as it applies to ceramics, and they begin to understand three-dimensionality and form.
In the beginners’ woodcarving course, the students develop skills in proper use of woodworking hand tools. They develop technical skills for carving, filing, and sanding, and learn how to work one-pointedly on a long-term project.
In the photography class students capture and embody principles of design in a 2-D photograph. They learn how to take photographs that are creative, dynamic, and holistic, and how to see, understand, and interpret visual information as a photographer. Over the years our students have participated in many state and international photographic competitions, winning frequently in the top three places of their category.
