College of Visual and Performing Arts

Ceramics

A concentration in Ceramics will start the student at beginning levels of hand building techniques and exposure to the potter’s wheel manifested through assignments that balance the student’s creativity with technical training. As the ceramic student advances through the area, they will use slab construction, mold made form, and the pottery wheel to create more advanced ceramic form. Students are taught glazing techniques throughout with a special course devoted to teaching knowledge of clay and glaze materials.  Advanced ceramic students concentrate on their personal ideas and goals. The Department of Fine Arts’ Ceramics Club is very active, sponsoring an annual fall fund raising sale and as an active part of NCECA’s (the National Council on Education in the Ceramic Arts) yearly convention.
