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.
