A Potters Wheel Can Change Lives!
My students need a potters wheel to help inspire their creativity.
My students are some of the most amazing young people on this planet. However, many come to school uninterested in the institution of school. I have found that the arts and ceramics in particular can be the hook that gets young people excited about school. "Art is the hammer that shapes our reality."
Many of my students come from extreme poverty.
My students come from a diverse background. I have found that once my students are given a chance and a hook that gets them involved, they can do anything.
Your donation will be used to purchase a potters wheel for the ceramics classroom. We need several wheels to accommodate the large number of student that the ceramics studio serves. Working with clay and in particular the potters wheel can be instrumental in capturing young people's imagination and excitement.
Your donation will help to change a young person's life for the better.
Just think how powerful an experience on the potters wheel can be for a student. It can be the motivation that captures a young persons mind and propels them to greatness. Art is the hammer which shapes our reality.
