With ceramics facilities that rival many colleges and an instructor who is an award-winning potter and ceramicist, students have the ability to master the art of ceramics right here at Gov's.  Earning top honors year after year in The Boston Globe Scholastic Art competition, students have also gone on to study art and ceramics at the college level.

GRADE 9

Introduction to Fine Arts: Ceramics

As part of our freshman Introduction to Fine Arts course, students will spend four weeks learning the basics of the wheel, glazing, and firing.  It's a great way to learn, have fun, and get dirty at the same time.
