Coiled Clay Festivals (part 1)

We participated in two big festivals this week: the El Centro Elementary School District Arts Festival and the Calexico Children's Arts Festival.  A total of 169 children participated in our signature coiled clay event at these festivals, learning to make coiled clay pots or working on perfecting techniques they've learned from us at other events.

We would especially like to thank our wonderful volunteers Lauryl and Maria. They answered the call for volunteers and made the Calexico Children's Art Festival much easier and much more fun than last year.

This year we don't have funding for our coiled clay program, which means we can't afford to pay all of our staff to be at these events.  Having volunteers help out not only helps our budget, it makes for a lot of fun too!

If you missed these two events, don't worry! We'll be at two more festivals in April: the El Centro Earth Day Festival Saturday April 12 from 9am-2pm at the 6th Street Community Garden (6th St and Ross) and the El Centro Children's Fair Saturday April 26 from 10am-4pm at Bucklin Park.  Join us for some coiled clay fun!
