The first session will start with an introduction to a brief history of ceramics. Afterwords we will start by using the pinch pot technique. Each will be given a pound to create a unique piece. During the presentation we will also discuss scoring and slipping. We will finalize by making sure that the pieces are within proper thickness. On the second session we will focus on basic painting decorative techniques. Each student will be able to choose from either acrylic paint or glaze to decorate their pieces.
