Our organization was established in 2004 as a way of bringing art into the community. We have been a part of SCCHE since 2009. There is a great need for quality arts with a Christian world view, and art that glorifies God is not only beneficial to our families but to the rest of the world as well. Our goal is to teach families to glorify God through the arts and to impact the world by applying what we learn in our community. Isaiah 64:8 (NIV) “Yet, O Lord, You are our Father. We are the clay, You are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”
Location of classes
Classes are held at the First Baptist Church Lake St. Louis on Fridays at 2230 Lake St. Louis Blvd. Lake St. Louis, MO 63367. For a map of the location, click on this link map. Parents and children are welcome to stay and fellowship while their students are in class.
Museum of Art Creations
You can visit our online art museum at www.artsonia.com to see all the wonderful pieces that have been created. On the Artsonia website, our school is listed as the St. Charles County Christian Home Educators or can be located by using the zip code 63376. All parents must complete a permission form prior to Potters Clay publishing any of your child’s artwork on the Artsonia website.
Enrichment, Exhibit and Outreach Opportunities
As part of our ongoing effort to reach out to the community, Potter’s Clay hosts occasional exhibits for both students and local artists. Working closely with The Mark Project, www.themarkproject.com, PC students will also have opportunity for community service focused on spreading the Gospel through the arts. We plan to expand our outreach to the senior adults at our host facility, to having Bible studies on Fridays and many other relationship-builidng events for both parents and students.
Registration is online. Click HERE to link to the registration page. You must be a current SCCHE family in order to participate in our program. Please contact Gina McAndrew at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy:
All SCCHE Programs and/or Classes follow the following weather/cancellation policy:
All cancellations due to weather or unforeseeable circumstances will be communicated via the email address listed on your family’s SCCHE membership profile. It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure their email is correct and up-to-date. (To check or update your contact information, please go to the SCCHE website homepage, look at the very top of the page, and click where it says PROFILE.)
The following reasons will necessitate a cancellation: Francis Howell and/or Fort Zumwalt schools are closed for inclement weather; the host facility closes for inclement weather; or the host facility has an emergency closing for any reason. There are no refunds or proration for cancellations.
Classes cancelled at the physcial location for weather will be made up digitally via Zoom, YouTube or other media of the teacher's choosing, either during the normal class time or on a future date determined by the indivdual teacher. Cancellations for other reasons out of our control will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and will be rescheduled digitally (or in person) at the discretion of the teachers.
Make-Up Class Policy:
If two or more classes are cancelled due to circumstances out of our control, every reasonable attempt will be made to offer a make-up class at the end of the semester.
If a student is absent from a class, the student (and parents) are asked to understand that finishing up a project and/or lab or making up a project is usually NOT available. Class room usage, and supplies are planned, purchased, and used according to the teacher’s curriculum schedule. Students who have not completed projects and/or labs may possibly make arrangements to take their unfinished work home, but it is completely at the teacher’s discretion. If students miss an entire project and/or lab, the student will most likely not be able to make-up that project and/or lab, but he/she will be able to move forward with the rest of the class.
