HHS Ceramics Program

Homestead High School students are fortunate to have a ceramic facility that is fully equipped with 3 kilns, 11 electric wheels, 1 kick wheel, a slab roller, a pug mill, clay, glazes and hand tools. Homestead's Ceramics Program offers the student 4 years of study. Year 1, Beginning Ceramics is an introductory year-long course learning hand building techniques and wheel throwing. Year 2 is a continuation of Beginning Ceramics, but the expectations of the students craftsmanship is greater. Years 3 & 4, the students have an option to work independently on projects expanding their knowledge and creativity in clay, with the possibility of creating a portfolio.
