Ventura College 3D - Beginning Ceramics
The students' first assignment: create a self-portrait. But not just your regular self-portrait. Students were asked to create a self portrait (at least 14" tall) using a historical vase as inspiration and reference. The assignment utilized various clay skills while requiring the students to think conceptually. Everyone is familiar with the traditional painted or photographic self-portrait... but a self-portrait vase? They did a GREAT job.
