My Project

Help us outfit our new art space by giving us the materials to create a ceramics lab for students to pinch, throw, and fire pottery!

A new kiln will help our art program thrive for grades K-12!

We will use this kiln across all grade levels and incorporate ceramics fully into our curriculum as we've always wanted!

Our high schoolers will pioneer a ceramics unit and explore this form of 3D art to level up their portfolios. We want to fully embrace the opportunity to expand our art curriculum by offering a kiln and the necessary materials.

Ms. Wright will only receive her materials if this project is fully funded by December 30.

Ms. Wright
Grades 9-12
