I make ceramic students submit drawings/plans for all of their

I always tell them they are plans to show me what they intend to make in
clay. This helps solve a lot of technical as well as design problems.
I emphasize they are plans not "finished drawings" things usually go
well. But, if I say I want "drawings" of their ceramic work they
usually panic and bring them up and say, "I can't draw!" I look at
their drawings and say, "you just did, what do you mean you can't
draw?" Usually by the end of the second assignment I never hear " I
can't draw ", they, JUST DO IT!
