BHS students create artwork for fundraiser

Seven high school students volunteered their Saturday — along with art instructor Kristen Bell — to create at least 100 clay pots that will be sold during May’s First Friday art walk.
The wheel-throwing event was from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the high school’s art room.
The pots are all shapes and sizes — tall, and pitchers, mugs and more.
Saturday’s event was open to the public — Bell started this tradition last year to give the community a chance to see the art created by local students.
During the next few weeks the pots will be trimmed, fired and glazed.
The final products will be unveiled — and for sale — May 3 at Zephyr Bakery, 1917 Main St., during the First Friday art walk from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The proceeds will support the high school’s art program.
