I took ceramics in this little building back in 3rd grade, and fondly remember those evenings mucking about with clay...I even still have one of the bizarre little pots I made.
We drove over to Independence so I could sketch some of the old neighborhood before it's gone...this one's for sale and had lookers while we were there! More on my trip down memory lane in this post on Urban Sketchers Midwest.
