Intermediate Sculpture

New course! Students will learn how to manipulate clay in different ways different from traditional functional ware. The first couple classes will be introducing various methods of sculpting from realism to abstract.  Students will then plan a bigger project to complete over the next few weeks.  A final crit will end the session where students can share their learning process. Clay experience is not required, but is a plus.
