The Pottery Club is Coming to Eagle High

TJ Culpepper
Students in pottery club make incredible designs. They make things like bowls and plates or just sculptures of their favorite things.

The brand-new pottery club led by teacher Julie Shelton has just come to Eagle High. After a long 3-week wait, the club has just been accepted. 

The pottery club will be for anyone to join; ceramics classes will not be needed to apply. Fellow students and Shelton will help with any projects.  

Sign-up sheets will be found in the library at the front desk. Name and email will be required, and after that an email will come from either Shelton, or founder and junior Avery Amado.  

“Pottery is a great way to create something out of nothing,” said Amado, “teaching somebody to make something is fun.” 

Pottery can be a great way to partake in art, de-stress and socialize with other potters.

If new to ceramics, do not be afraid to join. Members of the club are ready to assist any potters, regardless of skill or experience. This club was made to help new potters get into pottery but not have to use an elective slot on it.  

“One of the reasons I created this club was because of the juniors and seniors who can’t use an elective slot this late into high school,” Amado said.  

Club meetings have not been decided yet, but it is most likely that they will take place on Thursday’s during lunch. Students will work on projects during that time and socialize with other potters.  

Bringing the Pottery Club to Eagle High has allowed students to enjoy Ceramics without the commitment to a whole class.
