PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Clay Art Center will offer free clay workshops this spring to residents of the Purdy Avenue, Weber Drive and Traverse Avenue housing sites.
"We hope this project will celebrate the residents of Port Chester while beautifying the community and using clay as a unifying force," said Clay Art Center Executive Director Leigh Taylor Mickelson.
Residents of all ages are invited to decorate, carve, stamp and glaze 6-inch by 6-inch tiles with images of family, home and spring flowers. The tiles will be used in a ceramic mosaic for the Purdy Avenue building for a theme of celebrating unity, family, community and home.
In partnership with the Port Chester Housing Authority, the free workshops will be from 2-4 p.m. May 9, 16, 23, 30 and June 6 at the Traverse Community Room.
