Family Ceramics Class Returns Starting Jan 14

Finding time to spend with the family can be difficult, which is why Eureka Recreation is providing this 6-week long session of Family Ceramics to encourage families to get in some quality time and create art together.

This class will provide students the opportunity to work in a more free flowing atmosphere where projects will be available to create or participants can choose their own pieces to complete.
