Review for Friends Of The Visual Arts, Salem, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Willamette Art Center is an amazing hands-on ceramics center. We started over 5 years ago from scratch with a 'crew' of dedicated volunteers. Slow and steady has been our moto; increasing classes for all ages and skill levels; offering scholarships to aspiring potters; and, instigating the ever popular Family Clay Sunday which is partially funded by us as our way of giving back to the community. We also donate to Marion-Polk Food Share by putting on Empty Bowls. Another big project for us is Artisan's Village at the Oregon State Fair.

I would not change a thing! Everything is working!!

Role:  Volunteer & I volunteer in many ways, including Empty Bowls, Artisan's Village and a booth at Salem Art Festival.
