Mentors Needed For Student Critique Room!

NCECA is currently recruiting mentors for our Student Critique room at the Portland conference.

How it works: Mentors volunteer for one or more 30 minute time slots, when they will be available to meet one-on-one with students to give them a critique of their work. Students come prepared with digital images of their work for the critique. Students and mentors then have 30 minutes to discuss the work, and other professional concerns/questions the student may have.

Signing up to be a mentor is easy – visit this website for more information.

Who can sign up: Maybe you are a ceramics professor at a post-secondary institution, maybe you teach community classes, are a studio potter, installation artist, arts professional, or gallery owner… The main requirement is that you are eager to give back to the next generation of makers.

Why should you sign up: Because you will change a student’s life. No, this isn’t hyperbole – you really will. The student critiques are a big highlight of the conference for many students. In fact, we’ve already been getting lots of emails from eager students hoping to sign up.

When: The student critique room will be open Thursday and Friday March 23 & 24, 2017 from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm in room in room C124 of the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.
