Push your ceramic skills to the next level in this intermediate wheel throwing class. Mixed-level students are invited to practice wheel-throwing techniques with the goal of refining your approach, building new skills, and challenging yourself to throw more advanced forms. Molly will focus on techniques for throwing with consistent results, while also emphasizing the importance of design for making functional pots. Interested students may work on component making such as lids, spouts, handles, and/or matching sets. Everyone will finish their work with surface decoration and/or glazing. Prerequisite: at least one beginning wheel-throwing class.
Materials needed: Basic clay tool kit, hand towels (optional: apron)
About the Instructor:
Molly Cronenwett is an artist, photographer, teacher and mother who lives in Hillsborough. After growing up in Michigan and New Hampshire, she moved to NC in 1997 to earn an MA in Art History from UNC-Chapel Hill and a second BA in Art Education from NCCU. Since migrating south, Molly has taught art and art history to all ages—from preschoolers to adults—at a charter school, at her own community art school in Hillsborough, and through private lessons and camps at her home. She specializes in ceramics, drawing, and painting. As a studio teacher, Molly believes a focus on art history offers students a deeper understanding of art, as well as a catalog of successful imagery and ideas. She wants her students to realize that they are part of an enormous global community of artists—past and present—from whom they can gain inspiration.
Tuition includes the cost of a bag of recycled clay, glaze materials, and firing fees. Students should come to the back of The ArtsCenter building to access the ceramics studio entrance and patio.
