Hello! My name is Holly Coley. I am a teaching artist and the new owner of Pinckney Clay, where I worked for 6 years as a teacher before taking over as owner. This GofundMe is to raise enough money to send our teachers to Cincinnati, Ohio in March for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts. This 4 day conference advances creation, teaching and learning through clay in the contemporary world. The money we raise will cover airfare, conference passes, and hotel accommodations.
As a teacher, I know how important it is to attend educational conferences like NCECA to connect with peers, build professional networks, and learn from other artists. Experiences like NCECA can enrich artistic practice and boost lesson plans.
Please help us advance the ceramic careers of Ryan McCullen, Grace Corbitt, and Alex Beck.
