Yes, you can earn a ceramics degree at Keystone College! The Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts program, with a concentration in ceramics, is intended to prepare our ceramic majors for specialized careers in the field of ceramics, or pottery. Students will exhibit a high level of understanding of clay forming processes through projects and assignments that challenge the student’s creativity while perfecting skills. They will demonstrate critical analysis skills through group discussions, verbal and written reviews of ceramic work produced in and outside of class by learning and using a shared vocabulary to communicate aesthetic insights about one another’s ceramics projects.
