NOT QUITE PERFECT POTTERY SALE!

WHEN: Saturday March 15, 2014 from 11am to 2pm
WHERE: Sidewalk outside of Ceramics, Winston Square Park
Pottery starting at $2 and up!

Workshops by visiting artists are an important part of our educational programming here at Sawtooth. Bringing in visiting artists, especially those with a national reputation, can be very expensive.  In an attempt to keep student  prices low for those workshops we are establishing a visiting artists fund for the Ceramics program. To raise money for this fund we will be hosting a pottery sale here at the Sawtooth on Saturday, March 15.  The sale will include pottery that has been left behind, seconds, and class demos.

Our next visiting artist is Michael Sherrill.  Michael is a North Carolina native with a national and international reputation, with work in the Smithsonian and Clinton Presidential library, to name a few.  That workshop will be April 5 & 6.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity!

WHY TAKE ART CLASSES?

Many people understand the intrinsic value of the arts- we make art because it is a good thing to do but there are also many practical reasons to create art!

1.    Art stimulates the brain and helps develop problem-solving skills.
2.    Art builds a keener sense of perception, contributing to making better decisions.
3.    Art engages the senses.
4.    Art helps you relax.
5.    Art stimulates creativity.
