Ceramic Projects at THE SIROVICH CENTER
SPARC Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide
Workshops at the Sirovich Senior Center in Manhattan were supported by the
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Department of the Aging and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
Ceramic workshops were held at the Troy YWCA so that women living in the single room occupancy program
could experience the process of ceramic hand building. Each participant developed a project at an introductory level,
firing and glazing the finished piece. These images represent a few projects from the women who participated.
Sponsored by an Individual Artist Grant for Collaborative Projects from the New York Council for the Arts
