The purpose of our Departmental SGA Group is to help introduce the school and our department to contemporary ceramic practices and artists. We are committed to the continuation of the ceramics major and to the accessibility of our studios to MassArt students as a whole.
MassArt Ceramics educates students in the field of professional ceramics, including functional, sculptural, educational, and design work complete for today's audience.
The Ceramics Department offers beginning, intermediate and advanced courses designed to include technical and conceptual development that is imperative for individual success as an artist, designer and educator in the field of ceramics. Our goal is to give students a strong foundation of technical skills, material knowledge, design principles, and historical/cultural information.
The Department requisitions visiting artists for talks and demonstrations, goes on field trips to galleries, museums, and conferences throughout the entire semester. Junior and Senior Ceramics majors build a professional portfolio that includes documented images, a resume and an artist statement. We are here to better our department and enable us to do great and fun things. This is beneficial to both our department and to the rest of the groups in SGA.
