The Ceramics concentration at Kingsborough establishes a solid foundation in the art and artistry of working in clay. Students are well prepared to enter a four-year Ceramics program, or to venture into an apprenticeship situation, learning how to start and run their own small business, a truly practical tradition amongst fine artists.
Aside from its time-honored place in both fine art and contemporary design, ceramics provides a diverse range of practical applications in industrial design, dental prosthetics, and restorative forensics. Moreover, ceramics has also long held a prominent position in art therapy.
Ceramics remains a lifelong passion for many students regardless of their career paths, providing a safe and creative outlet for recreation and communitas.
