The Ceramics program at SLCC-Meramec is an elective course of study within the art department that explores the various techniques of pottery and ceramic sculpture, from the basic principles of hand-built techniques, to wheel-thrown pottery and extensive experimentation with glazes and oxides. Students often continue their studies towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree. Upon completing the Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) degree at Meramec, you can transfer - with no loss of credit - to the University of Missouri-St. Louis under the new AFA/BFA agreement. You can also transfer to many other colleges, universities or art schools in the United States. Meramec's Ceramics program is recognized for its excellence and consistent quality by local and national art institutions. The course Advanced Ceramics (ART:214) is a self-directed learning experience for students. Course work may include throwing, glaze formulation, handbuilding and kiln firing.

Your professors are exhibiting, professional artists. You will also learn from well-known visiting artists who lecture, demonstrate, conduct workshops and exhibit in the Meramec Art Gallery.


Meramec provides you with state-of-the-art facilities in which to learn and the learning tools to complement the superb teaching of the Meramec art faculty. A $3.5 million expansion of the Humanities East (art and music) building now houses enhanced classrooms, labs, studios and sophisticated graphics and computer facilities.

Your AFA degree can lead to careers in many exciting fields. Former Meramec photography graduates now hold a variety of positions as college and high school teachers, independent artists, studio photographers, lab technicians and photojournalists.
