AE 1112 - Ceramics for Educators: RMCAD Residency

Credits: 3

This introductory-level hybrid course provides basic skills and conceptual ideas within ceramics. The course is split into two parts over an 8-week term. Part I is facilitated through the online learning management system (LMS). Part II is a hands-on experience accomplished through a campus week-long RMCAD Residency where students explore basic hand-building and wheel throwing techniques through the application and manipulation of low fire clay. Primary glaze techniques and the use of an electric kiln are addressed. Upon successful completion of this course, students demonstrate a historical knowledge of clay manipulation, use of basic ceramic tools and techniques, and an understanding of safety requirements and practices used in the ceramics studio.
