The 7th annual Clay Programs of Excellence: Philadelphia Area High Schools Exhibition, supported by a collaboration between Tyler's Ceramics and Art Education and Community Arts programs, was a success! Over 70 people attended the reception for the exhibition on January 29, 2017, including one school superintendent.
This year was the largest exhibition yet, with 17 Philadelphia area high schools participating. There were 49 works submitted by the school art teachers, and ten of the 17 participating art teachers this year were also graduates of Tyler's undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Congratulations to MFA Ceramics student, Natalie Kuenzi, who is working as Roberto Lugo's studio assistant this summer at The Clay Studio.
From The Clay Studio's website:
Roberto Lugo has aspired to work with The Clay Studio since college when his ceramic professor told him about the Artist Residency Program. Lugo sees the Guest Residency at The Clay Studio as a pivotal moment in his career. Through his work with students through The Claymobile and personal explorations of the murals and Philadelphia neighborhoods, he will draw inspiration from the city while exploring the question: how does my past make me who I am today? During his time at The Clay Studio he plans to create vessels that portray images of people not commonly found on porcelain vessels, people of color, with a focus on those from the history of Philadelphia.
