The VAC started as The Potters’ Club over 70 years ago, and our ceramics tradition continues to thrive. The department offers a unique learning experience in our large studio, equipped with fourteen wheels, five electric kilns, and a laboratory for preparation of glazes. Open studio time allows students to hone skills. Workshops, demonstrations, and lectures by visiting ceramic artists enhance the curriculum. Teaching focuses on technical expertise – mastering the wheel, use of glazes, etc. – as well as encouraging students to explore the expanding boundaries of contemporary ceramic art.
The additional fee for materials covers: up to one box of clay, glazes, stains and engobes, as well as firings and the use of open studios for extra practice.
