The Art Club consists of 4th and 5th grade students who love the Arts and cannot seem to get enough art throughout the school day. Art club is also a creative environment where our young artists have the opportunity to expand their ideas in the area of fine arts.
All students interested in participating will need to fill out and turn in an application. These applications can be found outside the art room. Along with the application, students interested will need to bring in 3 -4 drawings of their own original artworks or personal sketchbook (artwork will be given back). Dates and times will be on the application. Application must be turned in on time!
Selecting the members of the Art Club is always a difficult decision, because the Art Club can have only a certain number of members. This is due to the number of materials, open table space, and limited seating in the art classroom. In the past, many students have signed up and some have not been able to be selected. MS. Stachiw will be selecting students according to their completion and effort on the application, effort on the students’ sample work, and if possible, prior knowledge of behavior in school.
Art Club meets on Fridays from 7:00 AM - 7:45 AM. It begins January 18th and runs through March 15th.
