Paint Your Own Pottery – BLM Week

Mon / February 22, 2021 Sat / February 27, 2021
All Day / The Memorial Union Workspace

20% of this week’s pottery painting will be donated to the Black Student Alliance

Choose from over 100 different bisque items, from functional kitchenware like mugs, bowls and plates, to decorative items like garden gnomes and dinosaurs. We will show you the basics of painting your piece and fire it within a week. Check out our weekly themes for inspiration! Open to all ages if accompanied by an adult.

“Black Lives Matter doesn’t mean your life isn’t important – it means that Black lives, which are seen as without value within White supremacy, are important to your liberation. Given the disproportionate impact state violence has on Black lives, we understand that when Black people in this country get free, the benefits will be wide-reaching and transformative for society as a whole. When we are able to end the hyper-criminalization and sexualization of Black people and end the poverty, control and surveillance of Black people, every single person in this world has a better shot at getting and staying free. When Black people get free, everybody gets free.” – Alicia Garza
