Clay crafts at North Channel

The current Houston Museum of Fine Arts dispay, "Once Upon a Time: Telling Stories Through Clay," inspired a group North Channel kids as they created their own clay masterpieces at the September afterschool craft program on September 15th.  Kids made clay vases, pots, baskets, and even hot dogs!  Lots of fun was had by all!  Join us for our next afterschool craft program on October 6th as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a Taste of the Americas and a Huichol Indian Yarn Craft.  See you then!
