Ceramics program


“I love this college. I love the instructors, my classmates, even the location is the perfect mix of the suburbs and city. I’m an hour’s drive from Boston, the beach and the mountains. Living in Manchester, I’m seconds away from my classes, restaurants, the music scene, cafés and shops.” Josh Query, Ceramics, Class of 2016

Degree earned: Bachelor of Fine Art
Campus: Manchester NH
