ART 1613 - Ceramics for Non-Majors


This course is designed to introduce students to a lifelong appreciation of ceramics arising from global culture by a brief but comprehensive overview of the history of ceramic art and the making of personal works of art.  Students will achieve this goal by researching, analyzing, and interpreting contemporary and historical ceramic objects, while also studying their materials, processes, and techniques in addition to making artifacts of their own.  
An introduction to the history of ceramics, ceramic materials, and various techniques of making ceramic artwork, including: throwing on the potter’s wheel, hand building, coiling, soft and stiff slab, and pinching.  Further exploration will include decorating, glazing, loading and firing of artwork in both electric, wood, and gas kilns.  Students will also work with the Wichita Falls ceramic community with the common goal of creating 1,000 bowls for the Wichita Falls Empty Bowl Event, which raises money for the Wichita Falls Food Bank.
