Teach at NCC

Teaching schedules are prepared approximately 4 months prior to the start of classes, to ensure adequate time for design and promotion. While we are always open to new talent, we work with a consistent roster of teaching artists who generally cover our adult class offerings. More often, we look for teachers interested in working with our outreach programs in residential care facilities, public schools, and at NCC with populations from underserved communities. We also look for interesting proposals for short-term one-off workshops.


NCC offers a range of internships for you to deepen your experience in ceramics and arts administration and to help fulfill degree requirements.

Grants & Fellowships

NCC proudly facilitates grant programs for current students, recent graduates, and emerging and mid-career artists.

Each year we want to increase our reach into the depth of talent in the region, the nation, and the globe. We have updated our application process to be more inclusive of a variety of backgrounds.

Exhibition Proposals

Northern Clay Center continually solicits guest curators and exhibition proposals for the Emily Galusha Gallery. These exhibitions require artwork made either partially or completely of ceramic materials. The gallery space measures 31’ x 19’ with a wall height of 11’. There are two windows on the south wall of the space. The maximum size for an object is 9.5’ x 5.5’.

Proposals can be for solo or group exhibitions. Proposals incorporating original or unique pieces made specifically for exhibition at NCC or in response to the space are most likely to be considered.
