Description

GLAZED AND CONFUSED: INTRO TO CERAMICS
Christopher Squier
6 Sessions >> Wednesdays, September 25- October 30
7:30-10:30pm, Studio 106, $295

This course provides an introduction to the exciting sculptural possibilities of ceramics, with an emphasis on concept development. Focus will be placed on the fundamental techniques from initial concept sketches through a variety of ceramic hand-building processes, including coils and slabs; wheel-thrown forms; and decoration using underglazes, relief, sgraffito, or stenciling. Each student will have the opportunity to complete a final three-dimensional sculpture from clay for a final class critique.

____
Christopher Squier is a San Francisco-based interdisciplinary artist who works in sculpture, digital imagery, and installation to explore optics and the role of light in contemporary visual culture. His work draws on research around luminescence and transparency to position vision, optics, and perception as historically-altered experiences. He has participated in residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts, Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder, and La Fragua Residency, and has exhibited in the United States and throughout Europe.

FAQs

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes, unless otherwise noted, meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
