Lomax Junior High School art students who are learning how to make pottery are putting their new skills to work in helping others.
Through the "Bowls for Hunger" program, those attending the March 8 Lomax Junior High School Fine Arts Night will have the opportunity to eat soup, help the local food bank, and take home a beautiful bowl created by a Lomax Junior High student.
According to Lomax Junior High art teacher Scottie Anderson, the Bowls for Hunger program is a wide-range program to assist food banks all over the America, and this is the first time that La Porte is joining the event. Lomax Junior High students have created approximately 150 bowls to sell for $5 each, with proceeds benefitting the La Porte Food Bank and the Lomax Junior High art program.
Soup will be served from 5 to 6:30 p.m., and other fine arts activities will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the cafeteria and commons areas of the school. Students participating in orchestra, band, choir and theater arts will perform for the public, and art students will have a show of their most recent work.
