Students from Port Chester High School and Greenwich Middle School will learn about ceramic traditions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa during a year-long, tuition-free program. The program is called Students Around the World in CLAY.
The center in Port Chester is home to more than 60 artists and is expanding its educational role in the community. The grant “comes at an auspicious time in the history of the Clay Art Center as we celebrate our 55th anniversary and our fifth year as a not-for-profit,” Executive Director Reena Kashyap said.
The Greenwich-based Common Sense Fund was founded by Connecticut real estate developer Sy Schwartz to support efforts on the environment and the arts.
