Fridali Style!

It's never a dull moment in the art room! Kids using their brains and creativity, and having a good time.  Here are two of my students who were voted "Most Artistic" for their senior class having fun with the photograph for the yearbook - "fridali style"!

Filled with Thanks and Gratitude

This past Saturday, we hosted our fourth Empty Bowls Dinner to benefit The Foodbank of South Jersey. Our Empty Bowls Dinners have become quite the community event, and they always leave everyone feeling full inside - not just with yummy food (all donated by community members and businesses) but also full of community spirit and pride. This year, we raised $4,000, bringing our total donations after four dinners to $16,000. (wow) The art students and the swim team hosted this year’s event, but the entire faculty, staff and community are also to thank for making this event so special. Maura McDermott, swim coach and math teacher, is the co-hostess with the mostest! My super fabulous art students contributed their talents, time and efforts in creating over 575 hand-crafted ceramic bowls and also worked the dinner. The keepsake bowl provides a lasting reminder that many people around the world have bowls that remain empty. Below are some pictures from the dinner.
