Elective Spotlight: Ceramic Sculpture

ceramic sculpture

In the Fine Arts department, PCA offers a ceramic sculpture class, taught by Carole Chebron. This year, the course will focus on the making of sculptural form and installation work with clay. Students will get to use varied mediums and materials to combine with clay. This class is based on the exploration of different subject matters and the acquisition of technical skills.

Ephemeral in situ installations at Briquetterie de Beauvais.

There will be no reenactment of Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore’s pottery scene in Ghosts. However, students will get to learn how to cast unconventional objects, as the first semester will be focused on experimentation.

During the second semester, students will have the opportunity to develop their personal vision through the production of sculptural and installation works.
