Ceramics - Minor
School of Art
241 Center for the Visual Arts
The Ceramics minor is designed to encourage students from all areas of the university to explore working creatively with clay. Students may explore making functional pots and sculptural objects using a variety of wheel throwing and hand-building techniques, or they may choose to work sculpturally in conjunction with other methods of creating three-dimensional objects. Flexibility in the curriculum affords students the opportunity to design a program intended to meet individual needs and freedom of expression.
