Welcome to Studio S6--Beginning and Intermediate Ceramics/Intermediate and Advanced Art

An Arts education is an essential part of any well-rounded education. Art is full of self-discovery and expression. Creativity and innovation as well as the development of visual communications skills are key to the work we do and are also at the center of the San Lorenzo Unified School District Graduation Profile. We have opportunities throughout the year to build our skills and also share our work with the greater community. SLz artists have been featured this year at Hayward's Sun Gallery and the Hayward Arts Council Gallery and REACH Ashland Youth Center's Dia de los Muertos Community Celebration. 
 
2020 will certainly be a memorable school year. Life for everyone took an unexpected turn due to the COVID-19 virus. I hope you and your family are safe and healthy. My love is sent to all those enduring hardships right now and we'll all do our part to get through it together. And students, know that our counselors are still here to serve you. Just contact them to make an appointment. There are many services, including meal pick-ups, offered by the school district and the community. Please reach out and know that help is there. AND, be sure to watch for those bright spots in your days. The Arts can be a wonderful healing place :) 
 
Sadly, also due to our Shelter in Place order, our Artists' Reception scheduled for our Show @ the D.O. on Wednesday, March 25, 4--6pm, had to be cancelled.  The wonderful student work that is currently on display at the District Office will be removed as soon as the shelter is lifted and will be available for pick-up. I will post information about days and times as soon as I know. We're already looking forward to and planning next year's show!
