Join us for a MN NICE program information session, where we will discuss the program’s many components before opening the floor to questions.

Is MN NICE right for you?
MN NICE supports the development of studio work and provides high-level training in ceramic materials, history and theory, and professional practices. Through instruction and individual mentorship, students build skills, knowledge, and insight necessary to create a personal and cohesive body of work. The program is led by ceramics artist and educator, Ursula Hargens, and is supported by the talents of myriad ceramic artists from around the region and from across the country.

Hargens explains, “Many individuals are eager to further their ceramic education and seek a professional credential, but family, employment, financial and time constraints limit their ability to do so within a traditional academic structure. This certificate program is designed to fill this gap, providing a flexible, yet challenging environment that responds to the needs of non-traditional students, giving them quality information, academic rigor, critical dialogue, and critique as they develop their artistic practice and strengthen their work.”
