Community Clay! is a program by the District Clay Center that brings clay and ceramics to underserved kids in the DC region.
Our current program brings to two Community Clay teachers each Friday afternoon to teach kids at THEARC facility in Southeast Washington. THEARC is a $27 million, 110,000 square foot , state-of-the-art campus located in Washington, DC's Ward 8. With a mission of working to improve the quality of life for residents of Ward 8, THEARC is home to eleven non-profit agencies that share the goal of helping children and adults reach their full potential.
We are grateful to ArtReach, an arts-oriented non profit affiliated with GW University, for offering District Clay the opportunity to teach classes at THEARC. ArtReach has been producing programs at THEARC since 2005.
Our Community Clay! Program is run under District Clay Center's 501(c)3 arm, the District Clay Educational Fun (DCEF). All donations to the Fund and our Community Clay! program are tax deductible.
