Pottery Painting with Harlem Dowling – 175th Street
November 21, 2009Free
Join us in taking the kids from the Harlem Dowling 175th Street center to go to Painted Pot in Brooklyn to paint pottery! We will meet at the center 11a for pizza or sandwiches with the kids and leave latest by 11:45 to go to the Painted Pot in Carroll Gardens, just a few stops into Brooklyn. We will leave Painted Pot by 2:30/3:00 and drop the kids off at the center. Volunteers are welcome to paint as well ($12.00) but are not required to. Painted Pot fires the pottery after we leave and we will arrange to get the finished pottery to the kids and volunteers a few weeks later.
