Students from our Clay for All satellite studio, Jubilee Arts, attended a highly anticipated field trip to Baltimore Clayworks! Throughout the month of February, their mosaic work had been on display in the Community Arts Gallery, along side figurative sculpture and functional ceramics made by the multigenerational class participants. Youth where beaming with pride showing each other their artwork! During their visit to Baltimore Clayworks, students took a tour through the Members’ Gallery, the 100 Teapots exhibition, and Jeff Oestreich’s show in the Solo Gallery. Students and their parents weaved around pedestals of beautifully crafted artworks, excitedly pointing and describing what they saw. Asad, 9 years old, was impressed by the tea set that emulated a tree, and was even more impressed by the price! We discussed what it meant to be a professional artist and then toured the studio across the street to see Resident Artist studios, classrooms and kiln rooms! The wood kiln was very tempting because of its’ fort-like structure. Students somehow managed to restrain themselves from climbing inside!
