Housed at the College’s Swain Center, the Heritage Arts program offers ceramics, digital photography, printmaking, painting, drawing, weaving classes, and a variety of other classes focusing on heritage arts, crafts, and artistic process. The program frequently works with community partners to offer opportunities to experience the arts or assist in delivering art-based content.
Our classes are centered on process based learning and the sharing of creative ideas. Anyone over 16 years of age may enroll in our classes year-round, while under 16 may enroll during the summer semester. The Heritage Arts program offers a Master Potter Certificate. For more information, visit the Master Potter Certificate page.
Each year, the program hosts several visiting artists. These workshops and demonstrations provide an opportunity for our students and community members to network, learn, and spend time with accomplished artists. These events are free and open to the public. Please check the College calendar for all upcoming events.
