PHOTOS: Students Serve Through Visual Arts at the Empty Plates and Bowls Event
This week’s Empty Plates and Bowls event featured visual arts student creations used to serve the local community. The plates and bowls were sold for $20 at the event in Johnson Wallis Visual Arts Center, and attendees filled their purchased plate or bowl with food catered from local restaurants and enjoy a dinner with fellow Tartans.
All funds raised at the event will be donated to Father Serra’s Pantry to fight hunger in Orange County.
This year’s event was one of the largest turnouts in its history, and attendees could choose from more than 250 plates and bowls made by grade 4 students, grade 8 students, and Upper School 3D, 2D and photography classes.
There were also plates and bowls made by St. Margaret’s professional community and auctioned off, including creations by Head of School Will Moseley and visual arts teachers Jesse Standlea, Mary Mayer-Grubb and Phillip Griswold.
The cherished annual event is a way for students to use their creativity to make art that ultimately benefits others in need.
