This sounds crazy, but it has worked because I wanted to make it work so badly. I
received a local arts council grant this year and with it began a visiting artist's
program. I invited a sculptor, a painter, and a potter. We adapted studio lessons to
follow-up such a using air-dry clay since we have no kiln. Let me know if you want to
know more. I just wanted to offer some encouragement that it can be done and done
very well. The school is planning to expand and build an art room in the future, but
until then I'll continue my juggling act enjoying every minute of it!
