Unit Code: ART502

Unit Name: Ceramics

Description: The primary objective of this course is to introduce students and broaden their knowledge in the art of ceramics (commonly known as pottery). This is to assist in further developing their knowledge, understanding and finer skills in pottery making. They will be required to visit clay sites and identify clay types, observe traditional and contemporary potters at work and individually demonstrate different techniques of pottery making. Since the raw materials are available locally, the course is structured in such a way for students to locate clay deposits and carry out the necessary preparation for pottery. A visit to the museum to gather information and view different items is a vital component of this course. It is important that students familiarize themselves with the practical techniques involved in the preparation of raw materials and the different styles of pottery. The knowledge acquired from this course is the essential element enabling art and craft teachers to enrich their contribution to the community and their teaching of ceramics. In addition, the acquisition of the basic concepts and skills are the essential elements enabling art and craft teachers to effectively execute this area of the art and craft program.
