On Friday, March 3, the Homeschoolers of Artesia had the opportunity to learn about the art of pottery.

A local artist, Mrs. Marcia Westfall from Carlsbad, gave a lively demonstration at her workshop that engaged all ages. She taught the children about the different kinds of clay and its properties among some other things. Twenty-eight homeschoolers got to mold, shape, and create their own clay weed pockets using their creativity to make unique shapes and styles.

The event reminded us all that as children of God, He is the potter and we are the clay (Isaiah 64:8).

The Homeschoolers of Artesia would like to thank Mrs. Westfall for donating her time, talent and resources to teach the children, and to First Evangelical Presbyterian Church for the use of their facilities.
