It’s time to get some glaze on at the Mansfield Art Center! Our Decorate-A-Bowl event, coming up in November, will be a fun social time where participants can decorate and glaze a ceramic bowl. It’s an occasion the whole family can enjoy together and all ages are welcome, but the best news is – it’s free. The Mansfield Art Center will provide a bowl for each person who attends and there will be refreshments available as well. Anyone who is interested may make a reservation and then all they need to do is show up and create! For those who may not have glazed ceramic before, there is no need to worry, we’ll have someone there to help.

Then, in December, we will be having our first ever Soup-A-Bowl benefit and fundraiser. We will offer the beautiful hand-painted bowls for a $15 donation. With the purchase of a bowl, people will receive all the home-made soup they can eat, soup that will be provided by our wonderful volunteers and supporters of MAC. The admission for this event is one food pantry item per person, which will go to benefit our local food pantry.

In order to prepare for these events our director George Whitten has been busy in our ceramics studio this last week making sure there are enough bowls to go around.  He’s thrown over 40 bowls alone! Meanwhile, even some of our adult ceramic students are joining in on the fun and throwing bowls for the event.  We have no doubt that there will be enough bowls to go around in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit everyone’s artistic needs!

Anyone who is interested in glazing a bowl during Decorate-A-Bowl will have two sessions to choose from. Session I will be held on Saturday, November 5th, from 11-12:30, and Session II will be on November 12th, also a Saturday, but the time is 2-3:30. Reservations are required to make sure we have enough bowls on hand. Register above.

Our Soup-A-Bowl benefit will be on December 10th from 5:30-7:30, so please be sure and make your reservation by December 3rd.  There will be lots of home-made soup and juice, coffee and tea to drink, and desserts. Online Registration coming soon.
