Students will learn about materials and techniques as they create their own ceramic art.

Pick up practical knowledge, aesthetic forms, technical approaches, solving problems, and content while the students explore clay as a medium.

In ceramic courses, students will learn how to produce ceramic art. They learn hand-building and wheel-thrown ceramics; experiment with molding, ceramic sculpture, glazing methods, altering techniques, trimming techniques, and firing methods for both electric and gas kilns as well as learn how to operate a ceramic studio facility. Students will be encouraged and guided on the development of their own artistic style and techniques.
