Make Your Own Pottery Bowl for the Empty Bowl Project

Ceramic bowls from Empty Bowl 2016 on display in the Galleria

This year is our fourth annual Empty Bowl Project at the Ocean City Center for the Arts! For a $20 donation in advance, you get one family-friendly pottery bowl making session as well as admission to a wonderful soup dinner on Friday, March 31. By participating in this event, you are helping to fill the food pantry at Diakonia and support the missions of the Art League of Ocean City. Two great causes wrapped into one event!

Bowls in a variety of styles and glaze colors

There are still six bowl making sessions available and spots are filling up FAST! You can call the Ocean City Center for the Arts at 410-524-9433 to reserve your spot today.

The soup dinner on March 31 is a great chance for us all to come together at our location on 94th Street bayside in Ocean City, Maryland. The dinner will go from 4:30 to 8:30 pm with continuous open seating. Soups, breads, and desserts are donated by local restaurants and served to all guests in the ceramic bowls that they made themselves. What a cool experience! After you enjoy your soup dinner, you take your bowl home as a reminder of all the empty bowls around the world. It is also a reminder of your support for those right here in our community. If you do not get a chance to make a bowl yourself, you can come the night of the dinner and pay $25 at the door to receive a ready-made bowl and admission to the soup dinner. In addition to a delicious dinner, we will have a silent auction, a cash bar, and live music. We will also be accepting cash donations that evening. Visit our website at www. for more details.
