The mission of the Saddleback College Emeritus Institute is to promote lifelong learning by providing academically rigorous, mentally stimulating, socially engaging, and health improving courses for older adults throughout South Orange County. The Potters and Sculptors Club is fortunate to have a large and well equipped studio, big enough to hold classes. The Emeritus Institute offers a wide range of classes in our studio ranging from handbuilding and wheel throwing to sculpture during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
These college classes are taught by professional instructors with years of experience. Further, while the courses are the same as you’d expect from any high quality art program, there is an added bonus for seniors taking these classes. The instructors cater to the needs of active adults, there are no grades or strict attendance policies.
