Odyssey ClayWorks has been raising money to increase their programing. There are only two days left to donate so head over and check out their Indiegogo campaign www.indiegogo.com/projects/pots-for-life. They have a $25,000 goal and have great plans for the money raised.
We must raise a minimum of $25,000 in 2013 in order to continue our mission. The funds will allow us to host lectures and slide presentations (which are free and open to the public), continue after-school and summer kids programs, pay fair wages to instructors and provide studios for our resident artists. We are also instituting a new vocational program for autistic adults and a therapeutic program for veterans. Every little bit helps!
Here's how we plan to use the funds:
$4778.....Two Brent Model 16 Adaptive/Wheelchair accesible potter's wheels
$4999.....Pug mill mixing machine for clay production
$500.......Material cost and labor to create two 100 sqaure foot studios for rental
$4000.....Scholarship fund for lower income students (This will afford 10 adults and 10 children the opportunity to participate in our programs this year)
$8000.....Specialist Instructor pay (8 hours per week for 50 weeks) at $25/hour (For new programming including a therapeutic program for veterans and a vocational program for autistic citizens)
$3000......Resident artist project support grants (Will create six $500 mini grants to resident artists this year to complete a large scale project)
