Fremont High School students are fortunate to work in a fully equipped studio with six electric wheels, 2 kilns, a slab roller and two clay bodies. Ceramics 1 students are introduced to a variety of hand building techniques including pinch, slab and coil. Various types of projects build personal expression and refine fluency in visual media. Students build capacity in visual expression through drawing and surface design as well as sculptural forms. Students can gain some exposure to the ceramics wheel, though this can become more of a focus in ceramics 2. Advanced ceramics students (ceramics 3 and 4) work independently towards deepening their practice in clay.
Advanced Art Program: Studio Art and AP Studio Art
Studio Art is an advanced level drawing, painting and mixed media course that advances individual voice and visual expression, cross-cultural exposure and thematic learning. One previous art class is required. AP Studio Art is for those juniors and seniors ready to take on a college-level experience in portfolio development.
