WAHS Visual Art and CTE students will hold an art show and sale at the Crozet Artisan Depot throughout May, with a reception on May 13 from 3 to 5 pm featuring pottery demonstrations, music, and refreshments. To prepare for the show, Jennifer Mowad of Cocoa & Spice (center holding sign), a Depot partner, visited the class to share marketing tips for hand-made items. “People buy with their eyes,” she declared, “so presentation is everything. Show your passion about your product. Every event is worth it, regardless of sales, because you make connections with potential customers.” “This show and sale are really special for our students,” explains Ceramics teacher Laura Chatterson (center back row), “because the Depot is generously allowing them to keep 60 percent of their sales price to cover the costs of materials.”
