Experienced and beginner students alike will practice and develop their own skills and art style with assistance from the instructor.
Ceramic Sculpture with Margaret Longchamp
This class encourages students of all skill levels to explore a multitude of techniques that can be applied to sculptural or functional ceramics. Through one on one guidance from our experienced sculptor, students will become comfortable applying the methods to their own work through this technique-driven class.
Ceramic Sculpture with Bill Underhill
This class is for sculptors of all skill levels. Beginners will receive one-on-one instruction as they dive into the basics of figurative sculpture. Advanced students will work on projects of their own choice with guidance from the instructor.
Wheelwork: Form and Function with Alex Minnick
This class is for wheel throwers and sculptors of all skill levels. We will work together to consider and explore the relationship between functional wares and visually driven sculptures. Wheelthrowing and handbuilding techniques will be put to use by students to create visually and functionally exciting artwork!
Wheel Throwing with Dick Lang
Previous wheel experience is preferred, but not required for this dynamic class. Students will focus on developing nuance and finish to their wheel thrown forms. They will gain confidence and hone their skills through each step of the making process as the instructor guides students through both assignments and self-directed projects.
Kiln Exploration with Marsha Van Vlack
This class will begin at the Arts Center with discussion, description, questions, and answers. It will include a field trip to tour Alfred's kilns and a firing day at Marsha's studio. The firings will include Raku, horse hair, naked Raku, pit, and experimenting with alcohol reduction. During the summer, students can use the studio independently as always but will also make pieces to fire alternatively. Previous WCAC attendance required.
