Using their hands and a little creativity, Shores art students will have an opportunity to give back to their community.

Tonight from 5:30 to 8, Shores’ cafeteria will host the Empty Bowls Benefit Dinner where bowls created and painted by Shores students can be purchased with proceeds going toward Kids Food Basket. Tickets to attend the event range from $5-$10 with some tickets including a spaghetti dinner.

“We wanted to do the Empty Bowls fundraiser because we wanted to support our local community and connect the arts to community involvement,” art teacher Rachel Drelles said. “We wanted the students to be able to participate in something bigger than themselves, so we thought that supporting Kids Food Basket would be a cool opportunity.”

Knowing all proceeds from the event will go to Kids Food Basket, students said they felt it was important to make the best bowls they could.

“It makes me want to try really hard to make my bowl good for the people who deserve it,” senior Maggie Duff said. “It is really cool that the school is giving kids an opportunity to give back and help.”

While some classes are painting premade bowls, others are molding new bowls from raw clay.

“I made my bowl happy looking with bright colors,” senior Serena Schultz said. “This is adorable and good because we are making things and helping people out. (Making a difference) is good because the world is bad enough so we need to help out.”

Duff said, “It is cool to know that something I put my heart into will impact someone else’s life and hopefully make their life better.”
