Director, Ceramics Department: Shenice Lafortune

The VAC started as a clay guild over 75 years ago and our ceramics tradition continues to thrive. The department offers a unique learning experience in our large studio, equipped with thirteen wheels, five electric kilns, a laboratory for the preparation of glazes, and our skilled technicians. Teaching focuses on technical expertise—mastering the wheel, use of glazes, etc.—but also encourages students to explore the expanding boundaries of contemporary ceramic art. The additional fee for materials covers: one bag of clay, glazes, stains, and engobes, as well as firings. Students are expected to bring their own tools. Open studios are available outside of class hours for students to come and practice and are included in the material fee.
