Join CASA!

CASA - The Ceramic Arts Student Association of UWM, has been making some big plans for Spring Break. Being a member myself, let me tell you all about them!

First of all, CASA is for anyone interested in ceramics, clay and getting their hands dirty! All are welcome to join and it's free to everyone! We meet every other Thursday in the Art Building Basement.

The most exciting thing we have planned for this semester is our very own juried show during the NCECA (National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts) conference that is coming to Milwaukee during Spring Break. We have organized the show ourselves and are busy making pedestals, cleaning studio space, and advertising for the show. If you're in town, stop by Moxie Studio 133 E Pittsburgh Ave, Milwaukee, WI Studio #201 and check it out!

We also bring in visiting artists, have an annual holiday ceramic sale, and eat a lot of good food.

Another event coming up on April 3rd is our Empty Bowls event. Every year CASA produces bowls to be donated to the Milwaukee Empty Bowls fundraiser that takes place each fall. The fundraiser helps to raise money for local food pantries by selling bowls t-shirts and recipe books. Check out the official website here: http://www.milwaukeeemptybowls.org/

If you'd like to get involved, contact Mari Marks, or message/post to our Facebook page. Don't forget to like us as well!
