During the CoSA Ceramic Summer Art Intensive, students will learn a variety of techniques of working with clay, including pinching, coiling, and throwing on the potter's wheel. Students will create functional forms such as cups, bowls, and mugs, as well as sculptural forms of their choosing. Towards the end of the workshop, surface embellishments such as painting with underglaze, carving, and glazing will be covered, allowing students to produce personalized work that truly stands out. Great for all levels of experience!
