CRAM 303: Ceramics Practices: Topic
Priority for this course is given to students in CRCP, ILUS and VIAR.
This course varies in topic from section to section, and is repeatable for credit provided that the thematic topic has changed. Because Ceramics spans a wide range of processes and skills, and traverses the realms of contemporary art, as well as the applied and decorative arts, the curriculum necessitates diversification. Students will develop their craft while responding to a specific cultural context or the unique implications of one approach to the medium. Merging critical inquiry with manual skill-building, this course will integrate a specialized focus with an investigation of broader poetic concerns of ceramic practice. Topics will span sculptural approaches, utilitarian design, and practices that bridge both.
