Clay Projects Going Home Today & Tomorrow

Clay Projects Going Home Today & Tomorrow

Just a heads up that student clay pieces are being sent home today and tomorrow. Why a heads up? They are super fragile and have a long journey home! The clay pieces have been wrapped in newsprint and exit the art room door that way. I can’t vouch for their safety beyond that moment (sorry). […]
