Clay Club program starting soonMar 27, 2018 03:57PM ● By Editor
An exciting free program for community youth ages K-12 to learn about creating with clay will begin soon. Clay Club will be held after school in the ISD 166 Art Room from 3:30-5:30 on Tuesdays for grades 6-12 and Wednesdays for grades K-5. Participants will engage with the ceramic process while building connections with others and exploring their own creativity. The focus will be on hand building techniques but there will also be limited opportunities to use the pottery wheel. This program is led by ceramic artist and educator Melissa Wickwire and co-facilitated by ISD 166 Art Teacher Mila Horak. Advance registration is required by April 10th. Please register at the ISD 166 office and direct any questions to Melissa Wickwire at [email protected] or (218) 370-1474. This activity, sponsored by ISD 166, is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Support for this project also comes from Cook County School District 166 Education Foundation and Cook County Kids Plus.
