Announcing the Ceramic Arts Daily Community Forum and New Education Resources for Students and Educators

Posted On March 31, 2010 13 Comments

We’re “broadcasting live” from the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania today. Continuing on the Education Week theme, I have a very exciting education-related announcement to make. Drumroll please: We have been working hard behind the scenes on a couple of cool new features on the site: the Ceramic Arts Community Forum and our new-and-improved education section.

Work by Chris Staley, ceramics faculty member at Penn State University.

New Guide to Graduate Programs in Ceramic Art Available for Download

Posted On March 29, 2010 6 Comments

Tomorrow we are heading to Philadelphia for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Conference so I decided to unofficially designate this week “Education Week” here at Ceramic Arts Daily. And to kick off Education Week, we have a new download to offer: Graduate Programs in Ceramic Art: Profiles of Several Top Institutions for Obtaining an MFA in Ceramics. With works by the ceramics faculty as well as graduate students, and a snapshot of the facilities and MFA program highlights, this collection of some of the best graduate ceramics programs serves as a window into what is coming in terms of new work and new inspiration in ceramic art! For today’s post, I am presenting a sampling of what you’ll find in the guide. Since we’re headed to Pennsylvania, I thought I’d pick a great Pennsylvania school.
