Description:

Clay offers endless creative possibilities. Throughout time, artists have been reinventing and renewing the art of ceramics. When you study ceramics, you will be able to develop technical skills in hand building, slip casting, glazing and firing, as well as engage in contemporary art practices like installation and digital imagery with your work.

In Quebec’s only ceramics program, you’ll learn a specialized practice that encompasses:
  • Theory, history and practice of ceramics
  • Working in studios open 24 hours a day
  • Immersing yourself in the technical process
  • Exploring new ways of thinking about and discussing your work
  • Engaging in collaborative projects across art disciplines
  • Going on field trips and meet visiting artists

You’ll practise in a communal atmosphere, sharing a studio, kiln and glaze room. You’ll learn from your instructors and visiting artists as well as your peers, taking part in a movement of ideas through the studio. Above all, you will develop a personal approach to ceramics based on your own interests and a unique body of work that you can build upon after graduation.
