New Year... New Programs! Resolve to Join Us
No Meeting in January
Looking forward to spring...
Our upcoming March 2017 meeting will include a program by Art Clay World of Oak Lawn. One of their talented instructors will teach us how to paint a ceramic garden pot, garden frog, or other item of our choice. Our projects will then be fired in a kiln at their site and returned to members. Items can be used indoors or outdoors.
There will be a small fee to cover the cost of the item.
