Complete three-year program. The emphasis on practice all throughout the training process, complemented by the intervention of guest professionals, guided tours and historical information, aims at providing a knowledge of the tradition of Ceramics as a basis for innovation, development of individual expression and a progressive autonomy of the students’ work. The school year is divided in modules of variable duration, oriented by different teachers and allowing for the exploration of various approaches to ceramic materials. The modules’ thematic content orients the students’ practice towards a variety of techniques and procedures.
