In the Adult Ceramics Program, we believe all skill level classes create a supportive atmosphere where students learn from each other. Advanced students are welcome in any class to work on improving their skills. 

Our instructors provide self-paced classes and will work with students based on their interests. Classes are held every Wednesday evening from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
