Print + Ceramics

The focus of this course will be working with drawn, painted, and photographic images in combination with ceramics and printmaking processes.

The combination of these techniques and materials produces an exciting and innovative image unique to each student’s artistic voice. The final result is a striking body of work, perfect for including in a college portfolio.

Print and material studies provide a balanced experience of technical skill building, conceptual development, with some risks and adventure. Students will be exposed to diverse disciplines in which will help them in the pursuit of an art career. Through the focused studio practice of ceramics and printmaking, students will discover that hard work, passion, adventure, play, and discovery, can lead to a well-rounded art education.

This course would be an excellent follow up for students looking to add additional breadth to their portfolio.
