ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Pinellas County Schools’ students that attend Creative Clay’s Transition Program will host the First Friday Art Market, Feb. 5, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The outdoor market is run by the student artists and held in Creative Clay’s courtyard.
Transition students will sell handmade original art, cards, ceramics, and Valentine cards. Live music by Emily Turnage and offerings by Baja’s Southern Food and Catering will highlight the event. Tables with Creative Thrift items available as well. This is an outdoor event, but masks are required inside the market.
Creative Clay’s vision is to make the arts accessible to all. Its mission is to help people with disabilities achieve full and inclusive lives through access to the arts by providing expressive, educational, and vocational experiences.
Creative Clay’s core program is its Community Arts Program, which serves 50-60 adult artists with neuro-differences each week. Through the implementation of additional offerings, such as the inclusive Art Around the World summer camp, Summer Studio for older teens and young adults, Artlink employment program, Creative Care Arts in Wellness outreach program, and its Pinellas County Schools’ partnership Transition program, individuals of all ages and abilities are mentored, taught and empowered to become working artists who actively create, market and sell their work.
