The children attending Unified Efforts‘s week-long Winter Break Camp spent time at Clayworks in Mt Washington creating clay pots and painted tiles to raise money for the Burundi Project, which funds a full-time doctor for the Kamenge clinic in Burundi. The students worked with artist Sam Wallace to create the “table full of love.”
The Stony Run Friends, located at 5116 N. Charles Street, will hold a sale of the artwork on January 28 and February 11. For additional information, visit Stony Run Friends Meeting Facebook page. To see additional artwork by campers, visit the Unified Efforts page on Facebook.
