Promoting excellence in the Ceramic Arts and in Education
The Bray has long fostered excellence in the ceramic arts and recognizes the necessity of fostering excellence in teaching. Through pilot programming coming in 2022 and 2023 The Bray aims to deliver custom programming for educators of all backgrounds and areas of study.
Expanding beyond traditional professional development in clay (technical and material knowledge) we seek to provide educators an inventive approach to developing unique pedagogies, philosophies, and contemporary practices in education, while building their technical and material knowledge.
