Nicole Fall


To Nicole, arts and education are the keys to fulfilment, understanding and community. As an educator for thirty years, she’s seen first-hand the empowering impact it can have on people’s lives—how it can foster creative thinking, cultural understanding, empathy and awareness in meaningful, lasting ways.

I am passionate about teaching; empowering people to realize their best selves and work.

Nicole is the interim Executive Director at Baltimore Clayworks—an organization with a mission to “develop, sustain, and promote an artist-centered community that provides outstanding educational, artistic, and collaborative programs in the ceramic arts.”

Clay is a powerful medium—and metaphor—for Nicole’s outlook. As an artist, she champions the power of expression. As an educator, she knows how arts education sparks growth and positive change. Through clay, she empowers people to literally shape—enriching and deepening—their lives for the better. Understanding their roles as people, as voices, as part of a larger community.

A Sacred Place aligns so beautifully with this mission. Nicole serves as its Firesoul—giving people in the community a way to reflect, reconnect with their thoughts and reshape perspectives. Art. Nature. Education. A power trifecta for growth!
