Functional and fun! Learn to create great pouring pots (known as “cruets”): an oil and vinegar set, a soy sauce drizzler, or any spouted vessel for a favorite liquid condiment to add an interesting accent to the table. Using wheel-thrown parts that are then handbuilt together, students will discover versatile ways to approach the cruet form. Demonstrations will include throwing off the hump and creating a custom trimming chuck for rounded pots. Surface decoration and design will be discussed with examples of finished cruets. Basic wheel-throwing skills needed; students may leave their greenware to be bisque fired at the Art School.

Through techniques popularized by revolution- ary art educator Dr. Betty Edwards, students learn to see in a right-brained way: holistically, intuitively, and without reducing the world to labels or symbols. This practice is the bedrock of any representational art making and the foundation of drawing with accuracy and enjoyment. Visual-spatial relationships are clari ed and draftsmanship improves.

Select a single object as your subject matter, preferably from nature, and small enough to fit in your hand. From this source, you will begin a series of small realistic pencil works. Through modulation and shifts in orientation and scale, you’ll use these works as a starting point to create a large-scale exploratory charcoal drawing full of gesture, movement, space, and energy. This is only the beginning of what can be a series of drawings that you can continue to develop outside of this class—a real portfolio builder!
