1890 Research & Extension to offer new ceramics class

Friday, April 1, 2011

Adding to its mix of community education courses, SC State University 1890 Research & Extension is offering a new course for art enthusiasts. Beginning Ceramics for the Community will be held April 4-28 on Mondays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building, Room 116, on the SC State campus.

The course will cover fundamental design elements and construction techniques used in the art of ceramics. Students will gain a unique experience in the ceramics discipline, learning traditional methods such as hand building, coiling, pinching and glazing. Students will also be introduced to the process of throwing or using the wheel. Allene Ali, a New York artist with over 30 years experience in ceramics, is the course instructor.

Most supplies will be provided; however, students will be required to bring the following items: 2-gallon-size plastic pail, an apron, towels, spray bottle and plastic garbage bags.

Registration is required, and space is limited. For registration and additional information, contact Demovia Gooden at dgooden2@scsu.edu or (803) 533-3673.
