About Ned Day

I grew up on a small farm in central Nebraska. There, I attended Redwing rural school from kindergarten through the eighth grade. The school closed its doors at the end of my last year in 1989. Once riding a horse to school, it was becoming clear from an early age, that I liked to add a little adventure to life whenever possible. For several years during and after high school, I helped work on a printed program for my neighboring town's rodeo.

This led to me choosing to attend college in 1994 with a major in Graphic Design at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. There I also became interested in fine arts, particularly in ceramics and sculpture. After graduating in 1999 with my degree in design, I worked in the publishing field for over
ten years as a Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and Art Director. During that time I was also active as a regionally exhibiting
Fine Artist.

While working as an Art Director in Sidney, NE, I helped establish the Sidney Fine Art Center. There I began teaching workshops in ceramics. This led me to become interested in teaching full time. So in 2010 I left all behind and began graduate school at Fort Hays State University in Hays, KS.

After much learning, many new friends and adventures, and
a lot of luck, I earned my Master of Fine Arts degree in 2013.
That same year I moved north to begin my new career as an
Art Instructor at the Great Plains Art Institute at Sinte Gleska University located on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in
South Dakota.
