Study Abroad - Ceramic Arts in Italy ClassroomProgram Description:

This course will be presented in Certaldo, Italy, in the province of Tuscany. The course is a cooperative effort between Wilkes University and La Meridiana, an international school of ceramics in Tuscany. It is designed for artists and teachers of art at a site that is rich in Italian culture and art history, and will stress both technical competencies and pedagogical skills. The creative process will also be explored through the use of visual journaling and other techniques to follow the artistic life.

The course design provides for demonstration and practice with building techniques that will lead to increased competencies in the areas of construction, glazing/decorating, and firing of ceramics. All skills will be geared toward teaching ceramic art in American schools. Attention will be given to teaching art in diverse classrooms and other contemporary issues of teaching art in our schools. There will be an opportunity to meet with Italian art teachers to discuss issues of interest in teaching art.
