Each year, our ceramics instructor, Jessica Gardner, works with her students to make over a 100 bowls for the Empty Bowls, Alexandria community project fundraiser.
The bowls are first thrown… created on the wheel and then they are trimmed to shape.
Empty Bowls is a national program that works with artists at the community level, to raise awareness for hunger in area communities.
Last year the students at Alexandria campus donated more than 100 bowls toward the community fundraising efforts.
Working on the wheel is one thing.. but working for the community while creating is far more rewarding.
For more information about this year’s November, Empty Bowls fundraiser, with work from our NOVA students, contact Jessica Gardner at JGgardner@nvcc.edu
