CmB - 05 After-School Ceramic Art with Constance McBride

balancing-actCmB - 05 After-School Ceramic Art with Constance McBride

In this class students will create a variety of sculpted clay works with a focus on the human figure. The class will begin by making clay tiles and embellishing them with their own patterned designs using stamps and rollers to create unique designs.  The students will then learn to create a bas relief of a face. Students will begin with a basic shape, or outline, of the human face that they can then sculpt and model into a unique face, or fragmented face. We will start with just a specific facial part (eye/nose/lips) and by the end of the course, will have created numerous tiles of facial features and full faces. The faces will be attached to tiles which can become a wall hangings.  We'll also focus on alternative surface treatments post firing.  Open to all levels, geared toward ages 10 - 16.
