In Ceramics, Clovis West students get the opportunity to create 3-dimensional sculpture using clay, often finishing these sculptures with glazing and painting techniques.
Ceramics 1- gives students a foundation of clay building skills and techniques such as pinch method, slab building, coil method, as well as many other techniques. Some of the projects students can look forward to making in Ceramics 1 are pinch pots, whistles, slab boxes, picture frames, coil pots, masks, animal sculptures plus many more.
Ceramics 2 - students will work on the potter's wheel. After Ceramics 3, there is the opportunity for taking AP 3D Design.
The prerequisite for Ceramics 2 and 3 is a “B” or better in the previous Ceramics course and/or permission of the instructor.
