Ceramic Arts and Ceramics | Bachelor’s Degree

Bennington College


We believe that through the complete process of making, from formulating clay to firing kilns, the mind and hand are engaged in a way that allows for the creation of work that excels in visual expression and conceptual inquiry. Students have access to a full range of technical training that includes throwing, hand-building, mold-making, glazing, kiln firing, digital fabrication, and mixed-media. Research and practice are the foundation used to broaden a student’s understanding of ceramic traditions and art historical contexts of the medium within contemporary art.
