The Raku Party is scheduled for Friday, April 15 courtesy of the National Art Honor Society. Students will be able to participate in a variety of activities including tie-dyeing T-shirts, graffiti art, dartboard painting and raku firing clay pots. The Raku Party will be from 7-9 p.m. and cost $5 to enter the event and another $5 to create a pot. Weather permitting, the event will take place behind the school. In case of inclement weather, it will take place in the ceramics room.

Sponsor Mark Mosier said the raku firing will be the most entertaining part of the night. The process includes painting a clay pot and using small kilns to fire them.

Mosier said the process will be visually entertaining for those who attend the event.

“It’s good for students to see because it’s probably nothing they have ever seen before,” he said. “When it gets darker, it’s really cool. The oxidation makes the glaze do cool things.”
