W.P. Wagner is home to an outstanding studio facility with state of the art equipment, which gives students the opportunity to create in diverse and mixed media types, and in both 2-D and 3-D. We offer full three-year programs in both general art and ceramics. Students who are looking for visual arts enrichment opportunities can earn credits and build additional skills in the focused areas of drawing or sculpture after the completion of Art 10.
Pottery 15, 25 and 35 will provide students with the knowledge and skills to create beautiful and functional works of ceramic art. There is no experience required for this course, and potters at the 15 level will have a chance to learn a wide variety of hand-building techniques, as well as basic wheel throwing skills. At the intermediate and advanced levels, potters will continue to refine these skills, and make increasingly independent choices with regards to construction method and function. There is no prerequisite for Pottery 15.
