National Council On Education For The Ceramic Arts
NCECA promotes and improves the ceramic arts through education, community-building, research and creative inspiration, offering programs, events and publications to support the field and communities in which we work. NCECA’s broad interests are shaped by artists, students, individual and corporate patrons, gallery owners, museum curators, and providers of ceramic arts-related products and services. As a dynamic, member-driven organization, NCECA is flexible in its program development, international in its perspective and responsive to the changing needs of its constituency.
While NCECA has programming running year long, the annual conference is the main event of the year. It travels to a different U.S. city each year. Programming of the conference includes demos, lectures, panel discussion, exhibitions and a vendor expo hall showcasing some of the best tool and material providers in the field.
Here are just a few of the offerings of the NCECA organization.
