Become a part of our encouraging community in any of these enriching classes! Let our diverse education programs bring out your creative side with an afternoon workshop, enlightening discussion, or serious studio time.
We provide access to state-of-the-art facilities and a diverse and talented mix of teaching artists. These classes—for adults who have never touched clay, for skilled artisans, or for families looking for a weekend adventure—introduce dozens of interesting topics and serve a variety of commitment levels: from one day to 10 weeks and from hands-on instruction to gallery presentations.
Adult students also enjoy open access to our studios from 9 am to 9 pm, 6 days each week, and “midnight madness” (from 9 am – midnight) on Thursdays (subject to other NCC events and programming).
