Craft. Create. Inspire.
Master your craft and reflect God’s love for creation as you study the arts at NGU.
Mold Your Future to Fit Your Passion
Countless careers require artistic creation. But unlike many forms of art, ceramics engages both beauty and function. From everyday kitchenware to one-of-a-kind works of decor, your creative ability doesn’t fit just one purpose.
Explore various types of clay and other material. Refine your abilities through hand-built and wheel-blown techniques. Mold. Glaze. Trim. Paint. And, of course, operate the kiln. From conception to final display, pursue your passion through a BA degree in art-ceramics.
Experience Learning as You Explore Your Craft
