Camden — On March 22, students at Children’s House Montessori School from toddler through elementary grades enjoyed a day-long session with visiting artist Liz Proffete from the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Nobleboro.

The students worked to prepare their clay and then fashioned a variety of objects from pinch pots to birds and vases. After glazing and firing is complete, the finished products will be displayed briefly before going home.

“We were so happy that even our youngest children could enjoy this wonderful hands-on activity and to see the intense focus that goes into the creative process,” remarked Katy Dermott, director, in a news release.
