This course offers an introduction to the techniques of sculpting in paperclay, with an emphasis on sculptural form and individual project development. Students will learn the process in creating deliberately unfired finished sculptures that include wire armatures, the use of strengthening and sealing materials as well as room temperature glazing techniques.
These techniques will be geared toward helping teachers to enhance student learning in a classroom situation.
Students will learn about basic paperclay sculpture fabrications and the benefits of papercaly versus regular cerammic clay. Specific assignments will allow the student to utilize these skills in the expression of form and concepts. The students enrolled in paperclay sculpture and cold finishing are expected to participate in every class session and perform to the best of their abilities. By the end of the semester they should have attained a good understanding of the various techniques of working with paperclay, as demonstrated in class, at an introductory level.
Additionally, each student will be expected to:
*participate in blog discussions and critiques.
*Complete a self-critique.
*Post a finished sculpture for critique.
*Post a lesson plan using a sculpture project in the classroom.

Every online class includes a web-based Discussion where you interact with your instructor and classmates. The Discussion simulates traditional classroom discussions, except that participation is asynchronous. This means that you can visit or contribute to the discussion at any time.
Participating in the online discussion is easy. All you need is the browser you are using to view this page. No other software or plug-in is required. You may post text, graphics, HTML, and Internet links in a class discussion.
Note: Students are required to participate in their class discussions on a regular and frequent basis. Each student should address individual comments to both the instructor and fellow students for each topic. At a minimum there should be at least one comment addressed to the instructor and a second comment addressed to a fellow student for all assigned discussion topics. Students should participate both at the beginning of the assigned time period and at the end of the time period for each discussion topic. More interaction is better and this is reflected in the class grading. Class participation in the discussion area is required and makes up a significant part of your grade.
