From the Potter's Wheel with Arielle Fatuova
We've had a very successful first year at the Lineta Pritchard Pottery Studio, and have brought in many new people to the Art Museum — not to mention lots of new members!

In addition to a variety of classes, we are continuing a monthly Art Therapy session with the Horry County Disabilities and Special Needs Organization in the new year. And we are introducing a second monthly Art Therapy session for veterans.

Another new program we’ve introduced in the new year in the Pottery Studio is called "Mudstruck" (Date Night), which we’re holding one Friday per month from 7– 9 p.m. Participants can sign up to enjoy a demonstration on the wheel and then an opportunity to give it a try with guidance from an instructor — all while enjoying BYO Beverages (beer or wine only). Talk about a creative way to socialize!
And our latest big news: We've just installed a brand new, second kiln, which was generously donated by students Nancy Pheil and Lori Rotz. They enjoyed their classes so much they wanted to give us the opportunity to expand, so that all the students could work more efficiently. Thanks so much, Nancy and Lori!

Things are definitely cranking up in our Pottery Studio!
