Ceramics - ARTS 1650 - 1660 - 2660

The ceramics program at CCRI provides students with the general knowledge of the processes, materials, and construction methods involved in working with clay. The courses offer methods of construction ranging from the use of hand building techniques to create sculpture oriented objects to the creation of functional vessels on the pottery wheel. With an emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving, a student will learn the processes necessary to create a ceramic object from concept to the finished project.
