2005 Ceramics Course Open to All at TAMIU

Ceramics Course Open to All at TAMIU

Anyone interested in creating with their hands should consider taking Intermediate Ceramics (Art 3324) this Spring 2005 semester at Texas A&M International University.

The class meets from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and while the title describes the course as intermediate, Tim Van Beke, visiting assistant professor, explained the course is for beginning level students, with no prerequisites and does not require previous art experience.

"In this class students will learn how to use the potters wheel to create a number of functional vessel forms, i.e. cups, bowls, etc. In addition, a variety of hand-building techniques will be addressed, all of which will focus on creating functional ceramics but that may also be applied to sculpture as well," said Van Beke, "This course will also introduce the student to basic art vocabulary, as well as glazing and firing techniques."

For more information, please contact Tim Van Beke at 326.3043, visit offices in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts, room 233C, or e-mail tvanbeke@tamiu.edu.
