On Tuesday, April 16, Rolland-Warner Middle School will be holding its annual “Fine Arts Night.” This is an evening of performances from choir, band and drama club students, as well as displays of artwork created by art students and performing visual artists.
On this same evening, the art students, with help from NJHS members, will be holding a community service event. This event is called “Empty Bowls.” Its purpose is to raise money to give to a soup kitchen in Lapeer. Here is how it works. Art students create ceramic bowls in art class. On April 16th, all are invited to the Empty Bowls event to enjoy a simple meal of soup, bread, and drinks. Anyone who attends will choose a ceramic bowl to use for the meal and to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal and the bowl, guests give a money donation. This year, all money collected will be given to the soup kitchen at Trinity United Methodist Church.
The Art Walk with exhibiting student artwork and demonstrating artists will begin at 5 pm, Choir performance will begin at 5:30, Band performances will begin at 6 pm, Empty Bowls will be from 5-6:45 pm, and the Drama Club performance will begin at 7 pm.
We hope you can attend!!
