The CAG is unique among the Civic Arts Education programs in the activity and funding it generates for the arts. The ceramics program at Civic Arts Education has been honored several times in the last decade: the Walnut Creek Pride Award in 1994, news programs focusing on CAE's ceramics program (KPIX in 1997 and KGO in 1998), and an award from the Citibank Foundation in 2002.

Instructors are well known nationally, and Peter Coussoulis, the studio manager has both a national and international reputation.

We will include a generous helping of reference material, aimed at helping the serious ceramics student to locate and avail themselves of the rich culture and resources in the San Francisco Bay Area!
