A Brief Message from our Executive Director, Cynthia Ryan

Hello Friends, we had an amazing turnout for the 3rd Annual Veterans Council Clay Shoot!  Thank you so much to all of our sponsors and shooters.  Your support and participation allow us to support the many veterans in our community.  We truly cannot do it without you!! 

There are many exciting things happening at the council.  Last month we had a great turnout and presentation at the Sebastian Chamber of Commerce sharing information on our programs.  Coming up are many opportunities to get involved with the Veterans Council and our veteran community.  Don't forget the General Council meeting and find out more about a free veteran event at the Vero Beach Museum of Art.

Our very own, Veterans Council Board Chair, Fr. Dave Newhart, shares information on the Veterans Council's holistic approach to supporting veterans at the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce Speaker Series Networking Lunch.  Our motto is 'No Veteran Left Behind'.

The Way of Clay
Instructor: Maria Sparsis


Veterans – Have you ever wanted to create your own hand-crafted mug? How about a wheel-thrown dinner plate? Now is your chance to explore the limitless possibilities of clay and creativity in this class, The Way of Clay. All levels are welcome and no experience is necessary in this free class for Veterans. During the five-week studio class, students will learn introductory clay techniques through instructional demonstrations and guided projects. Beginning students will learn hand-build, pinch, coil, slab and other techniques such as wheel-thrown pottery. Intermediate and advanced students will focus on technique and expanding their clay expertise. All students are welcome to join in on hand-building projects as well as projects on the wheel, and everyone will have the opportunity to practice surface decoration and glazing. Emphasis for all students is on technique, exploring your creative boundaries, and making artworks that are a delight to keep!

The Way of Clay is free for Veterans.
