Middle & High school can be hard for most of our kids to navigate. This Fall we've added even more opportunities for our teens to connect with one another, our community, and their families through art.

Take a look at our new High School only - Community Art Class created to harbor and nurture lasting relationships between peers and the art community!

Looking for a way to connect with your teen? Eastside Pottery is now offering Family memberships for students 15 + and their adult(s) to make art together in our 24hr Pottery studios.
