Ceramics Program

For 50 years, the Ceramics Program has served Harvard University and the greater community with its exciting educational offerings. 

Known internationally for its leadership in the field, the Ceramics Program provides a creative learning environment for a dynamic mix of students and professionals from the University, greater Boston, and the international community. Courses are offered over three semesters at all levels, as well as courses and events just for Harvard undergraduates, workshops in the Houses, FAS courses and student groups. Complementing the wide range of courses are lectures, master classes, and demonstrations by visiting artists and ceramics symposia involving potters, sculptors, art historians and archaeologists from all over the world.
