News Bites: Student Organizations Collaborate on Community Workshop
Two Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) student organizations, the Kendall Clay Collective and KCAD STAND Creative, recently came together to organize a community clay workshop for local youth and their parents.
On two separate days, members of the organizations met with workshop participants in the ceramics studio at KCAD to teach them how to make a variety of objects using clay. Once dry, the objects were fired and glazed or painted for the kids to take home.

The Kendall Clay Collective and KCAD STAND Creative collaborated on a similar event last year, and the KCAD students and participants both enjoyed it so much that they eagerly agreed to take part again this year.
"KCAD STAND Creative’s collaboration with the Kendall Clay Collective has been an entirely rewarding and motivational experience for both us KCAD students and the young people we worked with,” said KCAD STAND Creative President Madison Gentry, a student in the Interior Design program. “The Kendall Clay Collective students were knowledgeable and fun while interacting with the young people and their parents, and we could not ask for a better collaboration between our two student organizations."
On April 22, KCAD STAND Creative partnered with another student organization, the Kendall Green Council, for an event inviting local youth to create “seed bombs” in celebration of Earth Day.
