  • Austin Empty Bowl Project at Clayton - The Austin Empty Bowl Project is gearing up for the 18th annual event in November.  Last year, Clayton Elementary's art teachers answered a call for more bowls by offering a series of bowl making and bowl glazing workshops to support this worthy cause.  We are proud to participate in that way again. Ms. Hallmark will hold workshops on Monday afternoons from 3-4pm. Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are invited to sign up with an adult to make and glaze bowls that will be donated to the Austin Empty Bowl Event on Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014.  Space is limited to 20 participants per class.  Students must bring an adult to work together on the project.  This is a nice way to share quality time and explore an art form while helping a worthy cause.  The workshops will run on the following Mondays (9/22, 9/29, 10/6, 10/20, 10/27, 11/3).  You must sign up in advance to participate.  CLICK HERE to sign up.  Sign up is on a "first come, first served" basis.  Contact: Nancy Hallmark, nancy.hallmark@austinisd.org
