Billy Mathison (from left), Beth Jarriel, Lizzie Mahone, Sarah Arnold and Ashley Reid, members of the Aiken High School Art Honor Society, sold cookbooks to raise money for trips.

"The National Art Honor Society and the home economics cooking department at the high school put it together," said Beth Jarriel, president of the art honor society at Aiken High School.

The cookbook was completed toward the end of last year, and efforts to sell the cookbook have been increased this year, she said.

The book features a variety of recipes and is filled with the art of not only Aiken High students but those from Schofield Middle and other area schools.

The cookbooks cost $15 and are available at Pastel on Richland, 312 Richland Ave.; the Artists Parlor, 126 Laurens St. N.W.; and Tea Garden Gifts, 126 Laurens St. S.W.

Proceeds from the cookbook will go toward art-related field trips for the students, Ms. Jarriel said.

"We take field trips to art galleries and museums" such as the High Museum in Atlanta and the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, S.C., she said. "We have three annual trips."

For more information, call (803) 641-2500.
