La Salle artists raised more than $1,000 for good causes during the Holiday Clay Sale hosted by the school's chapter of the National Art Honors Society.
The fundraiser, held in the art studio in December, featured pottery created by students and art teacher Cha Asokan.
“The work was simple and functional -- some thrown on the potter's wheel and others hand built -- all very beautifully crafted,” said Asokan.
The Clay Sale brought in $1,500, which is being split between the Oregon Food Bank and the art department, which will use the funds to buy equipment for their exploration of 3-D curriculum.
The sale also featured baked goods and jewelry, phone cases, and Christmas ornaments that students made in the school's M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Innovation and Design Center, led by design innovation teacher Carie Coleman.
“Thank you to everyone who came and supported our artists and program,” said Asokan. “I am so proud of the art students and what they accomplished. We can’t wait for next year.”
