White Rabbit Due the 21st and other hippity news

Last Call for Rabbits!

2017 Artwork by
Hennah & Shaela

We have a long tradition of exceptional artists who’ve created our annual designs. The Red Clay Studio Society board is delighted to announce their gratitude and awe for the work done by Hennah VerhoevenShaela Creshion.
Each year White Rabbit gets a new look. This annual artwork gives our amorphous group an identity, a banner to band together under and a new t-shirt to distinguish alumni.
We think you’ll agree, it’s some pretty.
