MARTIN COUNTY --Crystal Lake Elementary held a "Family Art Night" on Wednesday, Feb. 12 where students glazed and decorated clay bowls donated by local artist Mia Linberg of Mia's Clay Habit and Supply.
The activity followed an art demonstration by Ms. Linberg and the students then had the choice to either keep the bowls or donate them to the "Eighth Annual Lundin Kudo Empty Bowls Project," a charity event to benefit Mary's Soup Kitchen and the Treasure Coast Food Bank later this month.
"We have several 'Family Art Nights' throughout the year," said Joelle Reynolds, art teacher at Crystal Lake Elementary School. "This one is particularly special because it involves a charitable cause. We are grateful to Mia Linberg for her donation of time and materials. The children will certainly get important lessons in giving as well as a valuable lesson in art."
The Empty Bowls Project has been described as a meal of savory soup and locally baked bread, served in handmade bowls that have been decorated by noted local artists.
Several local restaurants are donating a variety of soups. For a $20 donation, attendees will choose and keep their bowls and enjoy some great soup.
The event will be held at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Stuart on Feb. 23 from 10:30a.m. - 2p.m.
