All are welcome! Art History courses are an excellent elective opportunity for anyone in any major or pathway.
NHCC's Ceramics classes are enrichment courses. Many students mention it's a relief from other classes and daily life. Anyone can take Ceramics! Actually, no prior experience with clay is necessary. Students seem to enjoy resourcing their inner creativity and they get to keep their work.
