For our 2010 arts residency, we had two local potters, Leslie Montalto and Loretta Languett, visit our school. They spent three weeks working with all students to make bowls on the potter's wheel and by hand-building. The bowls will be used for our school's Empty Bowls dinner, which is a fundraiser for anti-hunger organizations in Vermont.
