About Chris Targoni:
"I grew up on the coast of California in a very creative family. As a child, I was given many opportunities to make art, some of which involved clay. In high school and college, I took ceramics classes and I loved working on the wheel.
My wife and I moved to DC in 2015 for a teaching certification program. I have been teaching elementary art since the 2016-2017 school year. In this work I have been able to give many students some of their first experiences with clay. Through Community Clay, I hope to help more of DC’s residents get access to pottery through community, school and family partnerships."
Community Clay! by the District Clay Center brings free clay and ceramics classes to the youth of DC, with a focus on Wards 7 and 8.
We are launching an exciting new program with DC Public Schools this fall to bring the joy of clay to hundreds of school kids during the 2020-21 school year.
