Northern Clay Center’s ClayToGo outreach program brings the ceramic arts into the community! Whether at a school, library, senior living facility, adult day center, or summer camp, NCC can bring the materials and teaching artists with clay expertise to your location! The wonders of handbuilding with clay can occur almost anywhere and NCC’s talented teaching artists love to share their knowledge and love of clay with the community!
How Partnerships Work
We create a custom program, adapted to the needs of your population and to the strengths of NCC’s teaching artists. NCC works with our partners to secure grant funding and we are dedicated to finding continuing partnerships to make these important programs available to a broader audience. We welcome conversations about ways in which to ensure long-term collaborations to sustain these important programs and learning opportunities.
