The Kids Art Club at Studio 138 has been a great success in its first year. We have had dozens of kids from 6 to 16 visit the studio on independent art projects and for classes in painting, glass fusion, ceramics, mosaics and more. The kids love working in clay and all have asked if we could add pottery classes. We've remodeled the Studio to make room for a small pottery studio with space for 2-3 throwing wheels and a slab roller. We already have shelves for drying, storing glazes and other equipment needed to make the Art Club studio work.

The Shelburne area is home to some of the best ceramic artists in Nova Scotia and many of them have agreed to come and teach the kids the  elements of pottery, design and glazing techniques. But first, we need to get the studio expanded.

We're growing young artists here!

We know that the parents and grandparents of the kids will support our project and, because there are such strong creative juices flowing in this part of Canada, we think the community here will pitch in to make this project a reality.

People all over the world know how important it is that young people are encouraged to find and develop their creative energy, so we think we'll get support for the project well beyond our town limits.

We think our rewards are creative too, especially the ones that come from the kids making art.

Risks and challenges

We've already sourced the best prices for the equipment needed, so we're really sure about the budget. The only real obstacle we see is not meeting our funding goal. If the first year for the Kids Art Club is any indication, we might find that the Pottery Studio is more popular than we expected and we have to do some some more remodeling to make more room. We'll manage to make that work, too!
