Class descriptions

CERAMICS 1

Teacher: Hosanna Bogert

In this class we will explore the idea of functional sculptures by building basic shapes and through hand building or throwing. This class is aimed at beginners and will introduce the basic concepts of working with clay, from building to firing, from decorating to glazing.

DRAWING 1

Teacher: Averyl Veliz

This is a foundational class that focuses on drawing what we see. Students will learn to “see” the forms in everyday objects and translate them onto 2D paper. Introductory concepts of light/shadow, perspective, and composition will be implemented.

DRAWING 2

Teacher: Averyl Veliz

This class expands on foundations learned in Drawing 1 and applies them to drawing what we imagine.  Students will be taught the next level of applying appropriate and correct light/shadow, perspective, and use of composition.
