Print + Ceramics

The focus of this course will be working with drawn, painted, and photographic images in combination with ceramic and printmaking processes. 

Basic skills developed in high school art studies will be applied through innovative approaches to alternative materials. The practice of drawing, painting, and digital imaging when combined with screen print, relief, and photographic transfer on paper and clay produce exciting and original images uncommon to other materials. Print and material studies provide a balanced experience of technical skill building and conceptual development, with some risks and adventure. Ceramic materials can be challenging and satisfying through the thrill of the process.

Combined with applying drawing and painting through printmaking, the results of these new and exciting material studies will be striking. Students will be exposed to diverse disciplines in which they could pursue art careers beyond the more recognizable fields of study found at high school and art colleges. Experiencing the focused and intense studio practice of these disciplines, students will find that this is an asset to those who desire to go further in their art education. Hard work, passion, adventure, play, discovery, invention, and innovation will all be pursued in two weeks.

This course would be an excellent follow up for students looking to add additional breadth to their portfolio.
