Kirby Gregory Residency, Pottery Camp Project Impact

January 2, 3, 4, 5 2017

The Apalachicola Center for History Culture and Art is partnering with Project Impact, the City of Apalachicola’s after school program.  We are hosting a special pottery Holiday Camp for students ages 5 to 17 years of age, starting January 2 through January 4, 2017 from 8am to 4pm.   Mr. Gregory will teach and coach the registered students each day to create small bowls and more from clay. They will learn to fire and glaze their art, preparing for our January exhibit which will feature the students clay art.  Mr. Gregory will give a demo before each exercise so the student has a working knowledge of what it is he is asking them to do. Beginners and experienced potters are welcome.                                                                                        

On January 5, from 9am to 12pm or 1pm to 4pm, Mr. Gregory is offering 2 opportunities for the public to try their hand at “throwing a pot” in his studio. The activity is free but space is limited, so please contact Nadine Kahn to register.  

The community is invited to the opening night reception of the exhibit, The Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art, 86 Water Street, Apalachicola, Florida, January 21, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.                             Student docents, from the program, will be available to discuss the various works of art.
