1 Ceramics Major Studio Courses Sophomore Program CERM200 Sophomore Ceramics 1 (6 credit hours) The fall semester emphasizes figurative sculpture with a focus on the self-portrait. Constructing methods of coil, slab, carving, and spraying material over an armature are introduced; form and the expressive potential of the figure are the primary considerations. Students learn to mix a variety of sculpture clay bodies to use in their work with the figure. Basic ceramic slips and stains and terra sigillatas will be formulated and applied as surface treatments. Students will explore atmospheric firing technologies such as soda and sagger firing. A model will be incorporated into the class to provide subject matter for both constructing and drawing the figure. A sophomore seminar, conducted in conjunction with the studio course, provides a venue for developing communication skills for analysis and critique, journaling and group discussion, a format for visiting speakers, group discussions of critical issues, slide and video presentations, and field trips to augment the studio experience. CERM205 Materials and Process I This course will focus on individual clays, other clay body components, and the various properties of clays that determine color, firing temperature, plasticity, and glaze compatibility. Utilization of this information will allow students to more effectively utilize and formulate clay bodies, slips, and terra sigillatas. Laboratory and firing theory and procedure will also be covered. CERM220 Sophomore Ceramics II (6 credit hours) Sophomore students focus on a personal investigation of the pottery/vessel and the sculptural object through an introduction to two important modes of pottery production - the potter s wheel and the plaster mold-making/slip-casting process. The course work is divided equally between these two areas. The introduction to the wheel component teaches basic throwing skills for making pottery forms derived from the cylinder. Ceramic slips, and glazes will be formulated, mixed, and applied in a variety of ways to discover the possibilities of surface treatment and development. Students will learn to fire their work in reduction and oxidation atmosphere kilns. In conjunction with critical analysis, slide presentations, and discussion of both historical and contemporary ceramic vessels students are encouraged to develop a personal approach to the wheel-thrown form. The plaster mold-making/slip-casting course teaches the technical mastery of a complex production process. A variety of sculptural forms and tile will be explored via the casting

2 process. The possibilities of altering and combining multiple forms from molds provide students with formal and creative options for the development of an individual, contemporary approach. The wide range of surface treatments explored will include china paint, luster, decals, commercially prepared glazes, majolica, sandblasting, electric and atmospheric firing. A sophomore seminar, conducted in conjunction with the studio course, provides a venue for developing communication skills for analysis and critique, journaling and group discussion, a format for visiting speakers, group discussions of critical issues, slide and video presentations, and field trips to augment the studio experience. CERM225 Materials and Process II The Materials and Process II course offers students a comprehensive understanding of ceramic glaze materials and processes. Through lectures, exams, and laboratory projects students learn essential glaze characteristics, the chemical elements, raw materials, and their individual glaze properties. Advance testing procedures for adjusting glaze characteristics, the toxicity of glaze materials, and the effects of kiln firing on various glazes is also addressed. The information is presented to complement the sophomore studio course work in the spring semester, enabling the students to more completely and accurately achieve their artistic visions. Junior Program CERM Junior Ceramics (5 credit hours) The fall semester junior course helps students expand technical skills with forming and firing processes while increasing their focus on specialized, personal, and creative investigations of the material. Students select a concentration in the vessel or sculpture. Individual and peer critiques are conducted as an integral part of the coursework. Each student participates in a mid-semester review and final critique with the ceramics faculty. Building on the sophomore introduction, students will develop a more complex vision of form and surface in the pottery/ vessel idiom. A variety of clay bodies will be explored, as well as an advanced approach to surface decoration using decorative slips, glazes, electric firing, and atmospheric kiln firing methodologies. Historical and contemporary pottery forms are studied through slides and visits to public and private collections. Juniors will also continue to explore ceramic sculpture and the use of the medium in architecture- tile, terra cotta, and sculpture. Historical and contemporary examples of clay within the building environment are examined. Students identify and develop a personal

3 approach to imagery, form, and the surface considerations of painting, relief, pattern, color, texture, and composition by designing, producing, and installing architectural ceramics. Juniors engage in a mentoring relationship with sophomores to encourage cross level, critical analyses of student works and reviews of local exhibitions. CEPP380 Junior Professional Practice I (1 credit hour) A junior seminar in Professional Practice is conducted in conjunction with the studio course. The seminar covers an introduction to writing resumes and artist statements, introduction to research methods at the Jannes Library, field trips to research institutions such as the Spencer and Linda Hall Libraries, and presentations offered through Career Services. CERM320 Junior Ceramics (5 credit hours) In the second semester of the junior year, ceramics majors begin working in a focused area of concentration in ceramic art. Students may select either a continued investigation of pottery/vessel form, or an extended concentration in producing ceramic sculpture and tile. In the pottery concentration, porcelain clay is introduced as a throwing medium, encouraging a closer examination of detail in thrown form. Advanced vessel shapes - lidded jars, platters and teapots - are explored. Students will be encouraged to continue their investigation and development of surface as they continue to build on the experience gained in prior semesters. Several projects concerning a compound form, historical vessel, architectonic form and collaborative projects are presented; students select specific problems for extended exploration through the semester. Ceramic sculpture juniors begin to develop a personal and focused direction in their studio work. Choices in the various techniques and media of ceramics materials are analyzed for appropriate use in relation to ideas. Individual research skills into areas of personal artistic and environmental interest are emphasized. CEPP385 Junior Professional Practice II (1 credit hour) A junior seminar is conducted in conjunction with the studio course. The seminar emphasizes critical thinking and analysis of artistic issues through group discussion, research, and readings. Each student gives a slide presentation which discusses their current research and notable reference materials.

4 Senior Program CERM400 Senior Ceramics:: Thesis (5 credit hours) Senior students work with the ceramics faculty to define and implement an individual studio approach to form, content, and technique. The course work will build upon and expand the knowledge base of technologies, strategies and ideas developed in junior studies. Students develop a thesis, theme, or conceptual framework; it is expected that an understanding of individual process of idea development and making will deepen. Researching and collecting information in areas of personal interest for projects will be emphasized. Invention, investigation, and experimentation in technique, vision, and concept are all key notions. Students will research and study historic and contemporary works as an integral part of artistic inquiry. Individual critiques with the instructor and group critiques with peers are conducted as an integral part of the course work. Participation and growth in critical thinking and articulation are expected of each student. CEPP480 Senior Professional Practice (1 credit hour) This course prepares seniors for presenting their work in a variety of venues and covers a broad range of topics regarding the professional artist s navigation of art worlds. Lectures, field trips, and visiting professionals introduce many sites of artistic activity, including employment and exhibition opportunities in museums, galleries, and other arts organizations. Students prepare and submit a course notebook and a series of professional materials - a slide portfolio, a final artist statement, and a final resume - to the Ceramics faculty. CERM Senior Ceramics II (6 credit hours) Seniors establish a direction and intent for a final undergraduate body of work that will be exhibited at the end of the semester in departmental, college, and off-campus venues. Each senior must be motivated, focused, and determined to explore visual and conceptual issues that are individualized and personal. Sustaining an idea, while continually challenging the artistic, visual, and technical processes is the challenge for students in this course. Individual research and the investigation of historic ceramic and /or contemporary art practice is expected of each student. Each student presents a slide lecture to the department of their artistic research and development. Individual and group critiques are conducted throughout the semester. Ceramics Internship

5 INTC300 Ceramics Internship (Variable hours) Prerequisite: For juniors and seniors only. The internship is designed to provide on-the-job experience in design, creation, installation, exhibition and/or teaching. This might include working in an artist's studio, a gallery, an industry/business, or a teaching institution. Workplace learning experiences are valuable for students as they encounter first-hand the daily operation of art related work opportunities. The internship is also an outreach tool and is mutually beneficial for our students, KCAI programs, and the local, regional, and perhaps national or international community. Students must consult the chair before beginning the application procedures. This course is designed to provide on-the-job experience for students. The departments recognize that workplace-learning experiences are important to students as they encounter first-hand daily operation of businesses incorporating a range of technical applications within a real-world context. This learning option will allow students to evaluate an expanded field of artistic practice and provide research in specific areas and technologies that are not covered in depth within the classroom. Ceramics Electives CERME335 Digital Design and Fabrication for the Artist This course will explore art-related applications for digital modeling and manufacture, including the production of models for molds, plans for large-scale works and installations, tools and guides for assisting low-tech processes, and finished objects. Students will learn various 3D modeling strategies using free and easy-to-use software. Computer-driven technologies for the fabrication of works will be explored, including 3D printing, 3D scanning, laser cutting, and CNC machining. Students will be encouraged to develop individual ideas and artistic goals, building on ideas initiated in their major studios. A laptop for use in class is required - Windows 7, OSX 10.6 or higher. CERME349 Figure Modeling This life-drawing course will investigate the human form through sculpture, drawing and the study of artistic anatomy. This course is open to students from all levels; who are interested in the study of the construction of form through the use of a live model. Lectures on artist anatomy will be a major component of the class. CERME360, Fundamentals of Ceramic Art Fundamentals of Ceramic Art will give students the basic skills necessary to produce, glaze, and fire ceramic forms. Students will be introduced via instructor demonstrations and

6 presentations to a variety of skills including clay and glaze preparation; wheel-throwing, mold making, and slip-casting; glazing options; and firing processes. Students will be encouraged to create individual and original ideas in ceramics media, and to develop a personal methodology and artistic direction which may complement the work in their major. Students have frequent individual critiques with the instructor. Formal group peer reviews are conducted two or three times during the semester. CERME370, 371, 372 3D Modeling & Ceramic Media This course will teach students to create actual "works" using 3D modeling software. The class will be divided into two sections. In the first section students will learn Rhino, a 3d modeling program, to create simple objects that are reflective of their studio practice and approach to art. In the second section of the course students will learn the mold-making skills necessary to render their creations into ceramic media. An introduction to slip casting and finishing techniques using slips and glazes will be covered as well. Students will be encouraged to experiment and expand on the techniques introduced in both sections of the class and develop individual ideas and artistic goals. CERME470 3D Modeling & Ceramic Media This course will build upon the techniques and concepts learned in the first section of rhino. Students will learn to create more complex models and propose projects related closely to their studio practice. Students will learn to use Aspire and gain a better understanding of the cnc mill. There will be two main projects during the course of the semester. One will utilize the reductive processes of the cnc mill and the other will be an additive process using 3D printing. CERME360 Fundamentals of Ceramic Art This class will give students the basic skills necessary to create and fire ceramic forms. Students will learn a variety of skills including clay and glaze preparation, wheel-throwing, and hand-building, along with high-fire, low-fire, and raku firing processes. Students will be encouraged to develop individual and original ideas in ceramic media. Open to beginning and advanced students. CERME364 Fundamentals of Glass-Kiln Forming This introductive and investigative glass class will explore two distinctive methods of forming: flat glass drawing and reverse relief castings. The flat glass format encourages the student to explore with "drawing" materials of colored powders, fluxing, frits, stringers and sheet glass. The reverse casting is more complex, as a basic knowledge of sculpting, moldmaking and strong technical skills is recommended. In both investigative components,

7 each student will be encouraged to develop a technical understanding of material, equipment and firing cycles as well as to demonstrate a strong work ethic and a passionate pursuit for investigating personal artistic strengths and goals throughout the semester. CERME384 Advanced Glass: Kiln Forming Advanced Glass Kiln Forming is open to students who have completed the Fundamentals of Glass: Kiln Forming elective. It is an advanced class for students who wish to continue their work in this technique and who wish to conduct an intensive personal investigation in the medium. To enroll in this course, students must seek permission from the instructor and write a proposal for their semester's work in advanced glass methods.
