Heth awarded grant

Sheila L. Heth, art instructor at Bureau Valley High School, was awarded an Illinois Retired Teacher’s Association Grant to purchase a potters wheel for the Ceramics 2 Class at BVHS. Ceramics 2 was a new class and there were not enough wheels for all of the students enrolled in the class. The class covered the basic techniques of throwing on a potter’s wheel, as well as further exploration into advanced techniques, including glaze application. Students created a variety of bowls, cups and vases, as well as a complete tea set. Pictured is BVHS art student Caitlyn Starr displaying some of her thrown pieces, including her tea set.
