Little Berlin Fairgrounds Project

The artists of the Cultural Arts Center are partnering with Little Berlin to create a sculptural installation for their Fairgrounds Project. The goal of this project is to work with local artists and art organizations to transform an abandoned lot in East Kensington into an art and garden space. We're so excited to be part of this exciting undertaking!

Today we painted bricks that will be used to make one of three pyramid-like sculptures that will be part of the Fairgrounds sculpture garden.

Evening Ceramics Classes

Last evening the Cultural Arts program held the last in an eight-week session of ceramics classes, "Working with Clay,"taught by one of our talented staff, Siobhan Koslap. These classes are open to all members of the community over the age of 18, regardless of ability.

During this session of classes, students learned hand-building techniques like coil construction and making boxes from clay slabs. They also had the chance to learn how to throw on the wheel. And of course everyone had a great time glazing and decorating their work.

Another session of classes will begin September 25. The classes will be held every Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 PM through November 13 at the Cultural Arts Center. Here's more information on how to enroll in this class!
