Randolph Community College is hosting an Arts Open House on Thursday, April 24, from 5-8 p.m. in the Pottery Center on the Asheboro Campus. The public is invited to view the pottery lab space, meet with instructors, and learn about some of the new and innovative pottery, metalworking and arts classes scheduled to begin in May and June.
RCC’s pottery, arts, and metalworking classes are designed to support, encourage, and inspire career and arts enthusiasts, according to Bryle Hatch, coordinator of workforce development at RCC.
RCC currently offers three different pottery courses, Pottery I, Pottery II, and Pottery Studio Lab. Both Pottery I & II are designed to take students from being beginning potters to advanced potters. The studio lab course supports those that are looking for a relaxed environment to create pottery with guided instruction from a professional potter and pottery instructor.
The Arts course will focus on everything from watercolor and acrylic to oil painting. Class instruction will also target developing the students’ artistic abilities using various mediums.
RCC’s metalworking course is directly supported by the schools’ Welding Program. Students will have the opportunity to develop and create artistic metal pieces and sculptures in this exciting class.
Students will have the opportunity to register for classes at the Open House. For more information, call 336-633-0268.
RCC’s Asheboro Campus is located at 629 Industrial Park Avenue. Take the McDowell Road exit off of U.S. 220 Bypass/I73-74 and follow the signs.
