OUR DREAM:  A kiln so that we may add ceramic pottery to the art room!  :)

 

 

*A big need.

 

**If there is a remote possibility we can do something with it, then send it...we are VERY creative. If we can't use it, we'll either find someone who can or we will toss it lovingly. Please send an email with any other materials you wish to see used in the art room that we may not have already! Thank you!
