What a great night

What a great night! We had 13 young artists and their families&friends for the exhibition, and people were impressed by students' beautiful works. Each students had a short "Gallery talk" time in front of people, and it should make them look more "artists". I proud of all students!

Avery Owen talked about her ladybug of her final project
Gracie talked about her violin
She worked on this really hard
Erin describes concepts of her works
Nice details! Erin
Chase already asked his parents to buy a potters wheel
Jessica really liked clay house project
Lily couldn't make the exhibition
Garner's next challenge would be a glass blowing!
Caley is from potters family and her works had really good details
Macenzi was always serious about all projects
Charlotte talked about the cup for her soccer team

I want to thank all students and families who joined this program. It was really successful and you are wonderful people. Also thank to Montgomery Fund for the financial support for this program. Thank to Jeff Dean from Dean and Martin Pottery for your generous time and effort for students, team STARworks for all your support, Santiago Ramirez for making clay and assisting class, Marla Coulthard for making this program possible from the scratch. Lastly, a big thanks to Takuro Shibata, the Director of STARworks Ceramics who did all unthankful tasks (dump trashes, clean up&set up studio, make glazes&under glazes, watch firing, take photos, paper works, send advertising, and even take&pick up our children to the daycare!). I couldn't have done anything without all your help and support.

Lastly, STARworks want to continue those educational programs as much as possible for area schools and students, and we need your support to make this more possible.
