Turning 400 student-made BOWLS into 3,000 MEALS for Arlington EATS

Eileen de Rosas and Melody Wolfe Thomas,  ceramic artists, educators, and Thompson parents, have for six months  dreamed and planned for an arts integration and enrichment project.  With grants from the Arlington Education Foundation and the Arlington Cultural Council,  Melody and Eileen are bringing our kids and our community to a common table.

Art.Food.Community is a community integration project that will give Thompson students the chance to learn about and create pottery with Melody and Eileen.  Each class will receive two sessions of a Ceramic Arts Integration workshop specifically tailored to their curriculum by the grade level teachers. During these sessions, each student will make two bowls that will then be professionally fired and glazed– one to keep and one to donate to Arlington EATS.

The 400 handmade bowls donated to Arlington EATS will be the showcase of our fundraiser on May 16th.  The community is invited  for a meal for a $25 donation to EATS.  Each $25 ticket includes a handmade bowl of your choice.  The bowls serve as a reminder of all of those in our community who don’t have enough to eat.
