The Ceramics program at Highline provides a sound foundation in the ceramic studio arts. Ceramics courses fulfill humanities distribution requirements for the general interest student, as well as offer students the opportunity to develop basic skills and experience for future study in art. Courses may be taken individually for self-enrichment or collectively as part of the Fine Art Foundation program.
The intention of the ceramics curriculum is to develop, create, and discuss artistic expressions in clay. Students will study varied forming, surfacing, and firing techniques.
There will be an emphasis on creativity, experience, personal growth, and studio involvement.
All classes will use dialog as a primary learning tool. There will be group and individual critiques throughout the quarter, and a final critique. The goal for all students is to learn the skills of observation and the language of constructive criticism.
