As part of our commitment to lifelong learning, we host Continuing Education courses for adults of all ages looking to explore their artistry through the medium of ceramics. One evening per week, over the course of 10 weeks, ceramic arts students can learn pottery-making techniques, including both wheel throwing and hand building, while also diving into discussions and demonstrations of aesthetic theory.

Both beginner and advanced courses are available, so students of all artistic skill levels are encouraged to apply. Classes are held in our on-campus ceramics lab and are taught by DigiPen faculty. See the Continuing Education course descriptions and required materials for more information on what we have available and what to expect.

Summer 2021 Courses

Clay and Slip with Ken Turner

This live, 10-session online class offers a great socialization opportunity for both new and experienced ceramists that will focus on hand-building techniques. In addition to instruction on techniques and 1:1 consultation with Ken Turner, the class will feature guest speakers who will conduct live demonstrations.

As work is completed, you will be able to drop off the work at DigiPen’s main campus for firing. Those who are not situated near Redmond, Washington will need to locate a local studio to fire your projects. See the registration page for additional equipment requirements and materials.
