Do you aspire to be a potter? We will be working either on the potter's wheel or using hand-build methods to create. These methods will include pinching, coiling and slab form techniques. Students will create functional and non-functional pottery using stoneware and porcelain clays. The firing will be done using the electric and gas kilns. Glazing will be done twice during the six weeks. The glazing will be completed using the dipping, pouring and brushing techniques with stoneware glazes. Fred Figueroa taught ceramics in the Clovis Unified School District for forty-two years in the art department at the high school and middle school level before retiring in 2014. From 1974 through 1994 he taught pottery through Clovis Adult Education. For years his students creative ceramic art pieces were selected by The National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition Foundation and exhibited throughout the United States. The first night of class a supply list will be distributed and we will begin creating your wonderful works of art.
