Art 2

Art 2 will continue the exploration of 2-dimensional Art consisting of drawing, painting, mixed media and other traditional and contemporary forms. Observation, memory and imagination are engaged while building a strong foundation in the elements and principles of Art. There is a strong emphasis on development of technical skills and conceptual concerns in Art 2.


This course covers basic construction techniques with clay: pinch, coil, slab, and wheel. Projects will take the form of sculpture pieces, as well as functional vessels. Students will learn glazing techniques, the firing process, and studio ethics. Ceramics 2 continues the practice of everything mentioned above, with more advanced and independent assignments.
