Handbuilding Ceramics

Instructor: Ara Koh

*Registration for winter classes begins at 10:00am on Monday, November 13th. Any registrations received in advance of 10:00 am, on the first day of registration, will be considered “early” and are processed at the end of the day.  Due to the high volume of registrations, for in-person registrations, only one registration will be accepted per person.*

This handbuilding class is a project-based exploration that merges traditional handbuilding skills with the student’s visual language. Students create based on their clay proficiency and artistic preference. Students are encouraged to bring original ideas and makeshift tools to create with. The instructor helps students bring their visions to life by working with them one-on-one as needed, and may provide prompts for new projects. Students acquire technical skills, create larger and more complex pieces, and enhance project design skills. Previous ceramic experience is not required.

The Art League Ceramics Studio is located at our Madison Annex in Old Town, Alexandria. The studios are large, bright, and well equipped, easily stimulating creativity. Open studio time allows students to practice and expand their skills outside of class. The tuition includes 25 pounds of clay, glazes, and firing in the electric kiln. New students may buy tools for approximately $20 at the first class.
