Ceramics is one of the challenging electives offered by the high school art department.  Right now the students are working on finishing up their coil pots and tiles and just beginning their busts. Coil pots take a total of 3 weeks to complete and are very challenging for beginners in the class. The tiles are one of the easier assignments.

Students have many different ideas about ceramics and take it for various reasons. Freshman Alex Stasiak said, “I took this class because I really wanted to do hands on work rather than a writing and listening class.” Another student, freshman Mina Hostage, said, “I really wanted to be more artistic.” Overall students appreciate that Manchester Essex Regional High School has ceramics class.
