Handmade Artwork Brings in Money for FoodGatherers

Handmade Artwork Brings in Money for FoodGatherers
Janaki Nallamothu

Art is a therapeutic process for sophomore Elliot Paloff. It has always been a part of their life and they couldn’t wait to share their talent and love for art with others.

On Nov. 13 and 14, Paloff stood on the third floor selling their art to support Food Gatherers. A part of the Qu Forum, Paloff decided to sell beaded bracelets, necklaces and paintings on wood to CHS students and staff.

“My favorite thing that I made was this bug, a weevil,” Paloff said. “It’s based on a photo I took. I really liked the photo so I decided to paint it on this wood.”

The time to create each item sold ranged from 15 minutes to an hour. Since Paloff made many of each item, the total time to make everything took them over five hours. During that time, Paloff learned more about themselves as a person and artist.

“I like making and producing things,” Paloff said. “One thing art has taught me is to be patient, especially when I’m painting.”
