From the Empty Bowls Project to sidewalk chalk, the Art Department stays involved with the community. Students are asked to participate in a variety of community outreach projects as they arise. You will often see our students working alongside other departments to enhance events such as Constitution or Earth Day. Each year the department participates in the LC Happenings event hosting local high school students. The students get to work alongside faculty and students in two art workshops. One of the events is The Empty Bowls Project. Professor Ford, Department Chair, shows each high school group how to make simple slab-made bowls so that they can pay it forward by raising funds for charity.
