Program Ceramics III is the core course of year 3. Evaluation of the participants’ progress is both continuous (the responsibility of each teacher) and formally confirmed, twice a year, with the presence of the head of department. A consistent and diversified body of work will become, all throughout the year, the participants’ individual portfolio. Distinctive characteristics of Ceramics III in the 1st semester: strong emphasis on individual, autonomous work; different working techniques in larger dimensions; building with coils, slab and carving block; different kinds of execution and finishing of pieces; emphasis on experimentation and concentration as conditions of rigor and progress. Firing of the pieces takes place during classes so as to demonstrate how to handle the kiln and promote the participants’ autonomy in a near future.
