So the legislature has passed the budget for this year, and I'm not on it...at all. No clay, no tools, no wheels, no kiln. I have to run the Ceramics 1 class for a whole school year with no funds. Good thing I got that small grant, it will cover my glazes, and "rent" for a kiln for the year, a couple of ware carts, my cone packs, and gloves. I guess we will be doing a lot of lunch plate fundraisers for the clay. Can you say "I'm so happy to work in a public school system, I could puke"? That's ok... it's an election year here for the legislature. I'm sure if I pitch my program hard enough with these people, I can get something done for next school year. Wish me luck! Until then, it's a good thing my college prof. gave me a couple boxes of clay when I graduated! That should last me till the end of October.
Anybody have a large bottle of Aspirin?
