The Program provides a creative studio and laboratory study environment for Harvard students, staff, and faculty, as well as international artists, scholars, and scientists.

New leadership announced for the Ceramics Program: Shawn Panepinto, (right) and Kathy King, (left) will lead Ceramics (with President Drew Faust at the opening of the new Studio).

The Ceramics Program opened its new studio doors September 9 for fall classes. The studio is located at 224 Western Avenue (across street from previous studio) in Allston. Read about the new building here.
