The Ceramics Studio at the Dean Road Recreation Center is a newly renovated space with many artistic and educational opportunities offered to the Auburn-Opelika area.  The studio offers inventive classes that are grounded in art, and therefore art education, offering creativity, self-expression, communication, and higher-order thinking.  Each class encompasses a unique and educational learning opportunity for students with a focus on traditional and contemporary ceramic arts.  Students will be able to understand, respond to, and talk about ceramic arts.  This is a perfect opportunity to introduce yourself or your children to the creative possibilities of clay.

Independent studio memberships are also available.  Our studio is equipped with nine professional pottery throwing wheels, a stainless steel extruder, a slab roller, multiple glazes, commercial-grade firing kilns, a pug mill,  and a RAKU kiln. Our studio space serves the artistic needs of the community, providing residents with the creativity, inspiration, and encouragement to create ceramic works.  The studio is designed so that individuals may work in a relaxed environment where ingenuity soars.  We hope that you will take a look at the brochure to see what classes are being offered.
