CLAY had a tent with demonstrations and free hands-on activities at last weekend's Blues Festival. Local artists Krissy Ramirez, Patty Countryman, and Zoe Wolfe demonstrated hand-building and wheel throwing techniques, and children were encouraged to take a whirl at throwing on the wheel! Children of all ages - and a few adults - were thrilled to have a chance to get their hands dirty for 5-10 minutes on the wheel.
This Monday kicked off five straight days of youth workshops titled CLAYplay: Exploring Our Wilderness Heritage. Through these youth workshops, students gain an understanding of their heritage fostering cultural pride and providing an outlet for personal expression and creativity. Each session is for youth grades 3rd - 6th, limited to 15 children per workshop. Free.
