Fourth Annual Art Club Chili Bowl/Plate-of-Cookies sale set for Dec. 2
Spending the past month making decorative bowls, students in Cowley College’s
Art Club are ready to display their work during the fourth annual Art
Club Chili Bowl/Plate-o-Cookies sale Thursday, Dec. 2 in the Earle N.
Wright Community Room. The event will run from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Buy a ceramic bowl made by members of the Art Club and eat the bonus of a bowl of homemade chili. Depending on the size of the bowl, the prices range from $5 to $20. Plates made by Art Club students will also be made available to purchase with cookies included.
The money raised will go into the Art Club fund and will help with future events or trips. Last year’s event raised more than $400.
Mike Fell, art instructor and co-sponsor of the Art Club, has been pleased with the work done by the students.
“The workmanship is better than last year and there is a higher degree of craftsmanship,” Fell said.
Fell said the fundraiser will help the Art Club with its planned trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico in the spring to visit museums and art galleries.
“This will serve as a new cultural experience for a lot of the students,” Fell said.
Art Club students have stayed busy in recent months by painting windows of businesses on Summit Street in advance of Arkalalah for a small donation, while also helping with the community service project at the Burford Theatre. They are also assisting with the after school art program with the Arkansas City Arts Council, preparing banners and decorations for the upcoming play.
Along with all of this, the students recently sold painted pumpkins to help in their fundraising efforts.
The public will have an opportunity to view some of the work done this semester by Cowley College art students as an exhibit of the student’s work will be on display at Baden Square in Winfield during the month of December.
