All projects will be tailored to the individual student’s interests. However, before starting a project, the student must first speak with Instructor Morito to discuss their ideas, their project’s scope. In some classes, students will learn the skills of slab building or clay sculpture, working from a photo image or from their own imagination. In PM class, students can sculpt in clay, working from a live model. Students can also learn the skills involved in the use of the potter’s wheel. All students will learn the art of preparing clay work for kiln firing and the use of glazes.
Registering for this class full-time will entitle the student to receive one 25-pound block of clay per month and one free firing of a work, which does not exceed 10 inches in any direction. Work exceeding 1000 cubic inches will be charged 5 cents per cubic inch over the 1000 cubic inches. Glaze firing is charged at 5 cents per cubic inch (for example: 10 (height) x 10 (width) x 10 (depth) = 1000 cubic inches). Additional clay can be purchased at the League’s Art Supply store.
