Ceramics I is a 1 credit course designed for students interested in working with clay at the high school level.  This credit fulfills the fine arts credit graduation requirement; when following Art Foundations or followed by Ceramics II the course fulfills the sequential elective credit as well. There is no prerequisite for this class however the course is available only to 10-12 graders.  The course includes hand building techniques, vocabulary, methods and the history of making pottery.  Much of what we will be making will be functional, despite this, students will be expected to come up with creative, original ideas for projects.  Students are expected to respect the opinions and creativity of others, clean-up after themselves, be responsible when dealing with supplies, demonstrate an appropriate attitude, and be cooperative.
