Fine art students who choose to focus their study in ceramics work in state-of-the-art facilities and are challenged to consider new perspectives in art and design.
Why Study This Program?
Millersville University's ceramics program encourages you to explore a variety of working processes within this medium of art. Hand building and wheel throwing are the basics, but students gain valuable insight and new perspectives by working closely with faculty.
This concentration, housed within the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) Art major, prepares artists to solve three-dimensional design problems of building, composition and glazing. The University now has a state-of-the-art kiln, which allows students to explore a large range of firing techniques including gas, electric, pit and soda firings.
What Will You Learn?
Every student enrolled in Millersville University's Bachelor of Fine Arts program begins their coursework by gaining a foundation in drawing, art history and two- and three-dimensional design. Those choosing to concentrate their study in ceramics will refine their skills in hand building and wheel throwing before progressing on to increasingly more challenging courses and opportunities.
