School of the Arts Ceramics Program: Hands-on Learning
Combine conceptual skills learned in the classroom with hands-on practice in School of the Arts Ceramics Program’s studio. Individual attention from your instructors in both settings will enable you to build confidence with ceramic processes, knowledge of studio safety and ultimately, achieve individual goals. Develop a solid body of work and be fully prepared to pursue independent practice.
You will be immersed in a vibrant and rewarding creative experience at the School of the Arts Victoria Street Campus where students are also pursuing the crafts: Jewelry, Textiles and Sculptural Metal.
