POTTERY DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN
WEDNESDAY 7:00 – 9:30 PM I SEPT 26 – DEC 5 (10 WKS) * No class Nov 21st
INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED with Beth Lindenberger – This class starts with hand-building projects (coil, slab and pinch) for the less experienced and is designed for students to learn techniques while making fun and functional objects. More experienced students may work on the wheel, developing their clay working skills, and are encouraged to bring their own ideas to incorporate into class projects while working under the direction of the instructor, learning forming, glazing, decorating and firing processes. A mixed class, it creates a great environment for learning from a group working with a variety of skills from beginning to advanced, covering various techniques each session. Projects are appropriate for students at multiple levels and change each session. Student preparation and motivation is highly encouraged! *Glazing and firing fee included in tuition. Students MUST purchase clay from CVAC on the first day, and throughout the 10 weeks as needed. Clay is $18.00 per 25lbs. M $165 NM $190
* Pottery classes are for Adults and Mature Young People. Students must follow directions and work independently, coming in prepared for the assigned projects.
