Art on the Edge program: ceramics students work with homeless children

February 25, 2015

In the spring of 1997, an Introduction to Ceramics class, taught by Lisa Lynes at North Idaho College, enlisted students as tutors in a local program called Art on the Edge. Through the program students in the class worked in an after-school setting with children living in the local St. Vincent DePaul Homeless Shelter. Students helped the children create original ceramic projects which were later fired by the arts department at the college. Several students commented that it was an eye-opening experience to work so closely with children who were living under such harsh conditions.
