VASE Participants 2019Hello! My name is Ms. Foster. I am the lead art specialist at CHS Kolarik. We have an awesome art program, which is growing in size and ability every year. I currently teach Ceramics 2 & 3, Sculpture 2 & 3, and AP 3D Design Portfolio classes. As part of the art program, we regularly participate in the TAEA VASE Competition.In the spring of 2015, I was fortunate to be granted a $5000.00 grant from the Channelview Education Foundation for an alternate firing area. That summer I worked to create the space outside my classroom. Ceramics students now have the ability to Raku Fire, Pit Fire and Barrel Fire in addition to the standard Electric kilns inside my classroom. Below are pictures from last years' first Pit Fire! It was so exciting and the work we fired came out with amazing colors.
