Students have been working all semester with their art teacher to make over 200 bowls to be sold April 19. All of the proceeds will go to benefit St. Mary's soup kitchen.

The teacher said he got the idea from a project he worked on at Ball State University. He said it's a fun way to raise money, while also getting students involved in the arts.

"There's been a lot of positive reactions, and I think the best one is getting students who would typically not take an art class in here, making bowls, realizing they can use their artistic talents to give back," said Trevor Campbell, the visual arts teacher at Concordia Lutheran.

The bowls will be sold April 19, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m in the school art room. The cost is $20 for a bowl of chili and a ceramic bowl to take home.

Anyone is invited to attend.
