The Ceramics program offers a wide selection of courses both for the first-time potter and the art student interested in the career potential of a studio potter.
The introductory courses, ART 141-Ceramics I and ART 142-Ceramics II, concentrate on the hand-building and wheel-construction methods, while the advanced courses offer more specialized studies in glaze making, ceramic sculpture, kiln firing, and even kiln construction. In advanced courses the student explores the design and production techniques necessary to be a successful studio potter.
The Associate in Arts degree in Ceramics is designed to prepare the student in the techniques and aesthetics needed to be self employed in a successful home pottery studio.
