The OLSH Art Studio is equipped with a rolling slab, four pottery wheels, and a large electric L&L kiln. Students have access to the studio during class periods and during study halls as availability allows. The equipment available to our art students continues to be updated to provide our students with experience working with the most up-to-date technology.
Students in ceramics classes get to experience pit firing, the oldest known technique for firing pottery. Students dig a pit in the ground and place unfired pottery projects in the pit. The pottery is then covered in combustible material and the pit is set on fire. After the pottery cools, it is cleaned to reveal unique patterns and colors.
