NCPC Tile project with local Artist Laura Avery

Laura Avery from Avery Pottery and Tileworks was chosen to complete a tile project with our local Seagrove Elementary School.
This is the finished project hung in the Seagrove Library which sits beside the school on Old Plank Road.
Over a period of several weeks, every 4Th grade class was escorted over to the NCPC where they watched a demonstration from a local potter and completed one to three tiles for the project.
The grant designed for this project was to reach the local community; to better educate and expose the school children to their local arts community which they live in.
