Ceramic art, as the oldest art form to ever exist, allows you to connect to all forms of visual art, because these co-exist, involving the same materials; it acts as a bridge across the ages, connecting traditional art with innovative art, craft arts with visual arts and applied ceramic.
By using those unique features found in clay, and by examining its different products across the ages, you can express new concepts, re-discover tradition, and be a part of the modern artistic experience.
While touching a mass of clay, you can discover the potential to give form to something that is formless, while gaining experience also allows you to uncover your own efficiency and capabilities. Clay has facilitated a significant aspect of human experience, which is to turn an object made of mud into a product of various aspects.
It is significant to be aware of the fact that the crafting of an object as an artistic procedure reflects an extremely important process: game activities.
Donald Winnicot states that â€śit is in playing and only in playing that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the selfâ€ť. When artists state that they are â€ścreating something specialâ€ť, they are considering a process where they put their materials and ideas in use.
In the art studio, learners enter a continuous creative process that requires the entire human bodyâ€™s co-operation. All forms of art are used in this continuous creative process, which consists of technical stages and various complex stages; through these, you can reach your final objective, which is the creation of an art object. In these art objects you can pour your own aesthetic taste, personal symbolisms and identity; by actively participating in our courses, you can explore your ideas and materials in a meaningful way.
