Macoupin County 4-H Spring Ceramics Brings Many Smiles

University of Illinois Extension of Macoupin County 4-H held a spring ceramics painting workshop on Saturday, March 25. Youth joined together for a morning of painting and fun. Participants painted decorative eggs and spring themed pieces to take home to display.

Marilyn Clevenger of Medora and Robin Gilmore of Carlinville were on hand to teach youth about the stages of clay, to demonstrate how ceramics are made, and to guide youth in painting their creations.

Marilyn provided all the supplies for this workshop and graciously decided to donate the supply costs to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in support of her grandson who battles type 1 diabetes every day.

For more information on 4-H or youth programs in Macoupin County, please call the Extension office at 217-854-9604 or go online to
