Ceramics art students are exposed to the scope of ceramic materials to gain ideas about objects and craft through study and hands-on practice. Through lectures, daily demonstrations, readings, and studio work, GC students are encouraged to perform their learning skills and combined techniques to transform their clay mineral into finished creative designs and discover personal artistic direction.
Beginning with Ceramic art and Global Foodways, GC students will gain a foundation for methods and historical ceramic forms with rich cultural practices associated with their varied functions. Additional special topics courses are offered and will add to the breadth of student experience.
To minor in Ceramics at GC, students will complete 15 credit hours in Art: 12 credit hours in Ceramics and 3 credit hours in Art History.
