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.”

Enrichment, Exhibit and Outreach Opportunities
As part of our ongoing effort to reach out to the community, Potter’s Clay hosts quarterly exhibits at The Family Vision Library. Exhibits are open to all artists (students and adults) in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our missions project, “Put Your MARK on Missions”, distributes Missionary Art Kits to missionaries who wish to spread the Gospel through art. Many fundraising projects, include a Potter’s Clay store, make these packets available. We also make these kits possible through our monthly “Art Workshop Events” starting this fall.
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 Family Vision Library closes for inclement weather; or the Family Vision Library has an emergency closing for any reason. There are no refunds or proration for cancellations.
Cancelled days may be made up at the end of the semester at the program director’s discretion.
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.
