January is National Tea Month and so Art League of Baytown has planned several tea-related activities. We are partnering with the Clay Arts Museum and Educational Organization (CAMEO) to provide the venue for the Texas Teapot Tournament in its 12th year each January since 2007. We are planning a High Tea Event as a fundraiser for the many great programs that our organization sponsors. We will plan to hold a Japanese Tea Ceremony. And since the Teapot Tournament is a competition of clay teapots, Art League is planning a Clay Workshop, partnering with Lee College on that activity. Details are forthcoming. But for now, we do have our brochure together for potters interested in entering their creations for this event. Each year, two teapots are chosen for cash awards - The Purchase Award is $1,000; the Memorial Award is $500. Honorable Mention ribbons may also be awarded. This year V. Chin is our juror.
