Handbuilding in clay relieves one of the disciplined, streamlined symmetry from the wheel, and challenges one to create interesting forms--that are at least balanced enough that they do not fall over!  Discover the gratification of freeing your creative sprit with simply your own hands and some basic tools, as this class aims to teach basic principles and aesthetics of sculpture.Beginner students will learn to translate their ideas and drawings into 3-dimensional forms, creating their own unique sculpture projects.  Techniques include relief carving, coil, and slab construction.  Surface decorating and glazing techniques are also presented.
