CERAMICS

Ceramics offerings for spring and summer have been designed to provide an easy transition between semesters. Students who register for classes in both semesters may work until the end of the spring semester and then pick up where they left off at the beginning of the summer semester. Pottery production is usually stopped two weeks before the end of each semester.
