This is our class’ favorite market of the year, and they have been working so hard to make it special,” said Amanda Drewes, ESE Teacher/Extended Transition. “They are excited to interact with customers and share their passion with the community.”

Transition student Cory will perform, as well as Creative Clay Community Arts Program Manager Emily Turnage. There will be a food truck available, which will be announced soon.

– The Pinellas County Schools’ students that attend Creative Clay’s Transition Program will host a holiday market, Dec. 4, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.  The outdoor market is run by the student artists and held in Creative Clay’s courtyard.

Transition students will sell ceramic snowmen, holiday wine bags, hand-painted and printed holiday cards, one-of-a-kind ornaments, canvas paintings, wrapping paper, jewelry, and other ceramic pieces that make great gifts.

 

This is our class’ favorite market of the year, and they have been working so hard to make it special,” said Amanda Drewes, ESE Teacher/Extended Transition. “They are excited to interact with customers and share their passion with the community.”

Transition student Cory will perform, as well as Creative Clay Community Arts Program Manager Emily Turnage. There will be a food truck available, which will be announced soon. Tables with Creative Thrift items available as well. This is an outdoor event, but masks are required inside the market.
