District Art Show & Empty Bowls

Carlisle High School’s National Art Honor Society (NAHS) is sponsoring their 9th annual Empty Bowls Event on Tuesday, April 7th  Empty Bowls is an international effort to raise awareness in the fight to end hunger. Empty Bowls has raised millions of dollars for organizations fighting hunger and events take place in many states across the US and many other countries. This year we will be selling handmade bowls during the CASD Spring Art Show. All donations from tickets will go to the Project Share Food Bank.

This past fall NAHS hosted make-and-take workshops. Participants had the opportunity to make ceramics bowls under the direction of Mr. Tolan and NAHS members. The group learned to make bowls on the wheel, different hand building techniques, and how to glaze their work. Stay tuned for future workshops this spring! All make-and-take workshops are open to the community.

Presently we are in the bowl designing and making stages of the project. We welcome any community participants interested in helping or donating bowls to our event. Our first work party will be on Saturday, February 8th (bowl making) and the second event will be held on Saturday, February 22nd (bowl glazing). Both workshops will take place from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. We are also looking for sponsors for the actual event to cover the cost of supplies. If you would like to make a donation, please contact 717- 240-6800 extension 26006. Leave a message for Ashley Gogoj and the NAHS advisor will get back to you.
