Annabelle and Richard teach the kids a little ofeverything, from the history of pottery-making and Raku to creating clay pieces, glazing options, and the firing process. The purpose of the program is for the children to develop their interest in the art of Raku. The entire class has worked on a large-scale fish project (pun intended), a pot, and a project of building a letter holder to take home.
“Really neat colors come out when you glaze!” exclaims Mariel Sanchez, a student in the class who loves the glazing process. Samantha Baron is happy they get to take their artwork home.
The ‘Artists Visiting Kids’ program is sponsored in part by the City of Marco Island’s Parks and Recreation Department.
