A ceramic class will be offered 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday starting Jan. 14 at John Wood Community College. Ceramics I: Art 106 will introduce students to the complexities of the ceramic process with handbuilding, wheel throwing, glazing and firing a kiln. The history and role ceramics play in contemporary life will be discussed. Assignments will focus on problem solving and communication of ideas using the ceramic process.

"This class is ideal for individuals who want to express themselves artistically and don't mind getting dirty while learning about ceramic processes and art," said Jennifer Teter, JWCC associate instructor of ceramics and director of education at the Quincy Art Center. Teter holds a bachelor's degree in fine arts from Truman State University and a master's degree in fine arts from Central Michigan University. Her ceramic artwork is sculptural with organic influences.
