Course length: one semester
Instructor: Mr. Clagett
Beginner level I, Intermediate level II, Advanced level III, and Independent Study. Students may progress one level per semester and with instructor permission be admitted to the advanced and independent levels.
This course is for students who want to explore the art medium of clay. Experiences in the studio are meant to build confidence in knowledge and comprehension, critical analysis and reflection, making connections and transference to the real world, and of course the invention/creative aspect of making artworks!
