The mission of this course is to give the student an opportunity to develop, explore, and heighten their technical, cultural, and aesthetic awareness of ceramics in a global context. Students will utilize the rich history and culture of China as a great resource. Studying in China provides an opportunity to learn and interact with resident artists, factory artisans, and to experience different technical processes during our visits to Sichuan University in Chengdu and the Jingdezhen Ceramics University or Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen. In Xian the students will conclude by visiting Terra Cotta Warriors museums, cultural sites at the historical capital city. We will also visit a kiln site of folk pottery near Xian.​
