A Piece of Good News!! from the Vermont Arts Council!

By camilla @ 4:10 pm

 

Heather Stearns is that wonderful potter who makes hand-thrown stoneware pottery at MUDDY CREEK POTTERY in Wolcott. Heather is also a top-notch teacher of pottery.

So, here is the good news!

Congratulations to Heather Stearns of Wolcott, who was added to the Vermont Arts Council’s Teaching Artist Roster earlier this month. The Roster is a great resource for schools applying for Artists in Schools grants. The residencies funded through these grants serve as a model for the integration of the arts into the curriculum and community of a school. The artists completing the residency must be selected from the Roster.

A seven-person panel of experts evaluated eighteen applications and based their selection on the artistic quality of the artist’s personal work, teaching ability, and ability to collaborate with others.

Congratulations!  Heather!  Praise and Accolades!images
