During this 4 week course, artists will learn basic hand building techniques with clay. I will demonstrate each step in an easy to understand format. Students will be encouraged to add their own unique details as we go through these projects. Week one- We will talk about the various properties of clay and how to manipulate it. We will dive right into creating our monster pinch pots. Artists will learn how to create a basic pinch pot structure and will be encouraged to add their own...
Artists will be introduced to the following clay hand building techniques: slab, coil, pinch, score and slip. Artists will also learn about the elements and principles of design and how they pertain to sculpture, specifically form, shape, texture and color.
I have both a bachelors and masters degree in art education as well as my teaching certification. I have been teaching art for over 13 years! In addition to teaching, I am also a practicing artist. My mediums include: painting, drawing, wood burned and copper enamel jewelry, sculpting and printmaking.
Every artist works at a different pace. If artists are not finished with a certain part of their sculpture by the end of our scheduled time, they will need to finish outside of class in order to be prepared for the next scheduled meeting. Artists should never feel rushed during class but must understand they will need to complete the target goal for that day before the start of the next session.
Air Dry Clay: I suggest Crayola Air Dry Clay 5lb or 2.5lb bucket in white: https://www.michaels.com/crayola-air-dry-clay-white/10446567.html?cm_mmc=PLASearch-_-google-_-MICH_Shopping_US_N_Kids_N_Smart_BOPIS_N-_-&Kenshoo_ida=&kpid=go_cmp-9638984798_adg-99988418355_ad-425991104288_pla-910866647246_dev-c_ext-_prd-10446567&gclid=Cj0KCQjwrIf3BRD1ARIsAMuugNvipy1gq4RSex7rE1C7xERwPu7yO8An5l3EQOwbi3iQunY3aRwH9FMaAlQrEALw_wcB Bowl of water Small rolling pin for rolling slabs of clay Towel or mat to protect work area Tools for creating texture and scoring clay: wooden skewers, popsicle sticks, butter knives and forks work well Paper towel and plastic bag for wrapping up unfinished sculptures Variety of acrylic paint colors: black, white, magenta, yellow and blue are the most useful. Feel free to have some fun with metallic or neon colors as well! Paint will not be needed until the 4th and final day. I would also suggest something to seal the finished project with. Either clear acrylic spray paint, varnish, mod podge, something clear that will protect and prevent paint from chipping later on.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Artists will receive formative feedback throughout the class. I will consistently check in to make sure everyone is understanding and feeling successful.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
