Last November, we celebrated our third graduating class of the Minnesota New Institute for Ceramic Education (MN NICE). The program is currently in its fourth year with another diverse and lively student body already hard at work. Kyle Rudy-Kohlhepp, the new Manager of Education and Studio Programs at Northern Clay Center, interviewed the new students about their experiences upon completing the program’s first trimester.
Last November we celebrated our second graduating class! We are proud to continue the Minnesota New Institute for Ceramic Education into its third year, with the most diverse student body to date. Jill Foote-Hutton, NCC’s new Director of Learning and Engagement, sat down with MN NICE students Kathryn Schroeder and Matt Cawley to discuss some of their experiences at the end of their first block of classes, September to November, 2016.
Looking back while looking forward—never an easy task, but a requisite one in the not-for-profit world. What have we done? What had we wanted to do? What’s next? Where do we hope to be? Fourth quarter of our calendar/fiscal year is all about finding answers to these questions.
We're really excited to share that the Minnesota New Institute for Ceramic Education has been featured in an episode of Ben Carter's podcast, Tales of a Red Clay Rambler!
This episode features a conversation between Carter and MN NICE leader, Ursula Hargens and NCC Head of Education, Dustin Yager, as well as students from the first year of the program.
