Centre promises "personal" education, and a big part of personal is knowing the persons who are part of your community. For that reason, we frequently include a photo of the individual making the submision—to help bring "names and faces together." If you prefer not to have your picture included, just say so on your submission and we'll honor that personal request as well.

The local community is invited to register for the clay creation class "LEAF It To Me" with Frank Kahanic at Ceramic Creations by Jaque in Danville on Saturday, Oct. 10, 10 am. Get out your rolling pen, put on your grubby clothes, gather some leaves, and get ready to play in the clay! You'll learn to “augment” traditional cast pieces with your one-of-a-kind hand-formed “nature-art.” You'll complete at least two projects during the class: one from clay, and one will be a cast piece that is "augmented" with your clay creations. This is an educational and informative class suitable for everybody.
