Art Club

Art Club gives students the opportunity to meet once weekly in a more relaxed and informal setting to discuss and work on art. Students may work on projects of their own interest or may use the time as an extension of an enrolled art class.  The art club is a fun way to use your talents to give back and fellowship with other artists. The Art Club may be asked or invited to participate in area shows, field trips, etc.
