Student Art On Display In New York

ST. LUCIE COUNTY – Students’ ceramic art pieces from Art Instructor Katherine Avra’s classes at Fort Pierce Central High School are on their way to the New York City National Art Education Conference this month.  These selections join other entries from across the United States as showcase pieces by Skutt Ceramics.

Students were challenged to create functional peep hole plugs of specific dimensions from clay and fired in a kiln.  Bill Jones, editor of Pottery Making Illustrated, judged the designs which will become part of a permanent traveling Peep Plug Collection.  According to Avra, students were enthusiastic about participating and even more excited to discover that their creations will be part of a traveling art show.
