  • The School of the Osage Art Department is holding the first annual Osage Empty Bowl Project from 5-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, at School of the Osage Middle School.
    Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
    Osage students are decorating bowls from Fire and Earth Studio and donating them for a good cause. Sixty percent of the funds from ticket sales will be donated to a local food pantry, The Hope House.
    Tickets are $10 and sales end Dec. 10. The ticket price includes a hand-painted bowl by a School of the Osage student and a chili dinner.
    Parents who have students that have made bowls in class can reserve their bowl. The art teachers will be collecting money and making sure the bowls are reserved.
