Chili bowl sales raise funds for Art Club
Spending the past month making bowls in their art classes, Cowley College
students put their work on display during the third annual Art Club
Chili Bowl/Plate-o-Cookies sale held Thursday in the Earle N. Wright
With bowls being sold for anywhere from $5 to $15, the event raised more than $400. The money will go into the Art Club fund and will help with future events or trips.
Students in the Art Club or students that are art scholarship recipients made the majority of the bowls. There were also a few student volunteers that helped make the event a success.
“The students were great, they pitched in and helped run things,” art instructor Mike Fell said. “I wish I always had such a responsible, easy to work with bunch.”
Individuals that purchased a bowl were treated to homemade chili. Cookies were also offered.
“I really appreciate the faculty, staff, and citizens that support the event and buy a bowl year after year,” Fell said.
Art students will have an opportunity to visit The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Mo. next Friday, Dec. 11.
“A lot of these kids have never been to an art museum,” Fell said. “We are fortunate to have the museum this close to us.”
