Study Ceramics at One of America’s Top Art Institutes

Ceramics at PrattMWP is a special experience allowing art students to work in one of the premier ceramic studios in Central New York. Students in their sophomore year are introduced to various methods of working clay into objects both sculptural and functional.

In addition to the our extensive indoor kilns, PrattMWP’s outside kiln yard affords students the opportunity to experience or assist in wood, salt, raku, and downdraft firings.

After your sophomore year, ceramic students continue their focus at Pratt Brooklyn’s campus and work in their extensive indoor facility capable of producing large-scale work as well as production work.

These exceptional opportunities, PrattMWP’s superb learning environment, and the reputation of a Pratt degree in fine arts are all reasons that PrattMWP is a great choice for students who wish to study ceramics.


PrattMWP boasts one of the greatest academic art programs and learning environments in the northeast.
