Empty Bowls Project Benefits Atlanta's Hungry

Members from the Pinecrest Academy community are making handcrafted bowls from October 11-16 to benefit the Empty Bowls project.
Sponsored by the National Art Honor Society, all from the Pinecrest community are welcome to visit the High School Art Room to make a bowl, and no prior art/sculpture experience is necessary! It takes about 15-20 minutes to create a bowl.
 
Bowl creators are invited to return the following week (October 16-26) to glaze their bowls - or have one of our talented art students glaze them.

These beautiful hand-crafted bowls will be on display at Pinecrest's Empty Bowls Supper on November 8 and November 10, from 6-8PM in the Upper School Gym Atrium. This will take place before and during the intermission of the high school production of Seussical. All are invited to this dinner, where guests will be served homemade soup in these handmade bowls in exchange for a suggested donation of $15, $20 or $25, depending on the size of the bowl. The donation for the bowl will also gain diners entrance into the Seussical performance!
 
Guests are invited to keep their bowls as a reminder of the meal's purpose, which is to raise awareness of hunger around the world and to fight hunger on a local level. 
 
All proceeds will be donated to the St. Francis Table at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta to feed all those who are hungry the week of Thanksgiving.
