There have been some posts about summer school workshops
so I thought that I would add the summer workshops at CIA to the list.
We have a potter, a tile maker and a sculptor. They are all excellent
teachers and our working space and facilities are some of the
best in northern Ohio. Call for details.

Ceramics: Coil Building Process
I Week Workshop, Course #341-A
Students will work with low-fire terra cotta as they explore the
coil-building process. Beginning students will be exposed to
basic building techniques and become familiar with the
potential and limitations of building objects in the 18-24 inch
range. More experienced students will focus on working on a
large scale, between four and five feet. Experienced students
also will learn to build nesting chucks to promote nonflat
bottoms. Since this is a five-day workshop, work completed
during this workshop will be fired at a later date.

Ceramics: A Picnic in the Garden of Eden
June 24-July 6
2 Week Workshop, Course #341-I
students will be encouraged to develop work based on the concept
of decorated dinnerware. The workshop will begin with
slides of the instructor's work and a discussion of process. The
workshop will demonstrate a variety of wheel thrown and
altered functional forms; students are expected to have basic
wheel throwing skills. Students will be encouraged to think
through individual themes and to choose forms that best
express a personal concept of a picnic in a real or imagined
place. Special attention will be given to the application of glaze,
with a concentration on layered majolica process.

Architectural Ceramics: Site Specific
2 Week Workshop, Course #341-F
This workshop is especially recommended, but not limited, to
artists who are interested in pursuing commissions and public
art opportunities. The instructor will discuss her experiences
with public art commissions, and offer guidance on project
budgets, deciphering blueprints, and working with architects
and administrators. Students in this workshop will develop al
site-specific work for the Cleveland Institute of Art while
addressing artistic and technical challenges. They will explore
the aesthetic as well as practical factors of the project in an
effort to create a work which is complex enough to invite the
viewer to enjoy and study a different nuance every time one
enters the space.
