Rise Against Hunger Empty Bowls Art Show

My students need a clay slab roller for hand building pottery. This will benefit every student in our school throughout the year, especially during our fall service learning project, Empty Bowls.

My Students

"Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons!"

-Al Hirschfeld

My students at our school are some of the most creative and inspiring ones I have had the joy of teaching. They are highly motivated and eager to explore all that art has to offer. As a K-8 school, I have the pleasure of watching students grow and mature into well rounded and skilled artists.

In the art room, we explore the creative process ending in beautiful works of art! Students experience a wide range of different media, from drawing to clay and everything in between! Students are encouraged to discover more about themselves and the arts through creative problem solving. We find inspiration from the world around us, their grade level content, media, as well as artists both famous and local. Our art studio is an amazing room that allows students to feel the freedom to express and create.

My Project

By donating to my project, you will also be helping our efforts to raise awareness to stop hunger, locally and globally. As a school, we partner with the organization Rise Against Hunger every November to pack meals that are then sent out to communities in need. On average, we deliver over 40,000 meals each year. The night before the event, students host an art show where all 600 plus young artisits exhibit their ceramic "Empty Bowls”. The show conveys a message of hunger, service, gratitude, stewardship, and ultimately community.

A slab roller would be an amazing addition to our art studio!

I will be able to teach my students more advanced hand-building pottery techniques. It will provide an opportunity for my students to grow their skills as a ceramics artist. They will have access to professional grade equipment needed in creating ceramics with more creativity and craftsmanship. We will be able to work more efficently as a clay studio. Also it would be something the entire school will benefit from.
