SMC at The ArtWalk
SMC’s Ceramics and Art Mentor studios are located at the College’s Airport Arts Campus, 2800 Airport Ave. Ceramics students will demonstrate their creative process, from molding and wheeling the clay through baking and glazing the finished designs. Additionally, there will be a special sale of student ceramic and glass works.
Students in the SMC Art Mentor program will also exhibit their work and discuss their process in a large common-area studio. The Art Mentor program provides highly talented students with an opportunity to work one-on-one or in small groups with mentors.
