Open Door Art Studio & Gallery Creative Mentor Tim Cook recently had the opportunity to attend The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) 2018 National Conference this year in Pittsburgh, PA thanks to funding received through the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities – Building Innovative Service Model Grant. Tim said “It was definitely an experience that I will never forget! I had the opportunity to network, meet some of the top artists in the ceramic arts, and attend great lectures and demonstrations where I gained valuable knowledge to bring back to the ceramic artists of Open Door.” There were over 50 ceramic exhibitions going on in conjunction with NCECA and Tim was able to see some great artwork and brought back photos to inspire the artists of Open Door.
