Pottery Open Studio: A Place to Create

In addition to high-level AP Art History and AP Portfolio art courses, Grier’s Signature Art Program provides opportunities for student artists of all levels and abilities to create and learn about a variety of artforms, including drawing, painting, graphic design, printmaking, costume design, jewelry, ceramics, and more!
Department Head Mrs. Heidi Zimbler oversees the ceramics studio. Here, students can attend courses in ceramics and take advantage of open studio times on Friday afternoons and some weekends. During a recent weekend open studio, students created name plaques from slabs of clay. Pottery Club focuses on constructing and glazing a variety of bowls for the annual Bowl Sale Fundraiser, typically held each May.

Your work is looking good, artists!
