MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot State University art professor will lead students and North Dakotans on a trip to China this summer to study the country’s history of ceramics.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Sg2zeJ ) the 15-day tour will trace the development of ceramics through five cities in China.

Professor Linda Olson will lead the program. Starting June 6, the group will visit museums, ancient kiln sites and will also get to see the infamous Terracotta Army.

Olson says the country has deep roots in ceramics and that the art form in the country has developed to an “incredible level.”

The five cities the group will travel to are: Shanghai, Longquan, Jingdezhen, Xian and Beijing.
