What is Empty Bowls? Founded by Lisa Blackburn and Art teacher John Hartom in 1990-91 when they joined a drive to raise charitable funds in his Michigan community. Hartom's idea was to organize a charitable event to give artists and art students a way to make a personal difference. Hartom's students made ceramic bowls in their high school art classes. The finished products were then used as individual serving pieces for a fund-raising meal of soup and bread. Contributing guests kept the empty bowl. During the next year, Hartom and other participants developed this concept into “Empty Bowls”.  Source: Wikipedia. CCS students and staff have created our own "empty bowls" to support Second Harvest. Staff bowls will be on sale February 23.  Student Bowls will proudly be on display.  Hope to see you there!
