VART2546 Ceramics: Hand-building Techniques (1.5 units)
- VART1006 Visual Arts Practice II or any GE-courses offered by AVA
VART2555 Ceramics: Wheel-throwing Techniques
- Medium of Instruction:
Clay is the most natural and primal element on earth. Its plasticity makes it the most tactile hands-on material in artefact making. This is a skill course designed to teach students the basic hand-building techniques involved in constructing and surface decorating ceramic forms. It creates a practical basis for addressing perceptual and aesthetic concerns as related to formal concepts such as balance, structure, continuity, texture and details.
Emphasises will be put on the development of construction skills and an understanding of form/space relation, surface treatment, and firing possibilities. Students will be encouraged to develop their own means of personal expression through three-dimensional representation, especially with the transformation to one single material.
