Art Studio Workshops – Middle School

PROPOSED DATES AND TIMES OF CLUB

The club will meet for a total of six three-week workshops and is open to all middle school students with a cap on each workshop at 12 students.
The club meets from 2:30 – 3:30 on Monday afternoons
Students participate in the Spring Art Show in May by displaying their personal art created in the club workshops.

PURPOSE OF CLUB

The purpose of the Middle School Art Club is to expand the program to include students at PK who are not able to take the regularly scheduled art classes. It also offers the opportunity for students who have a strong interest in art to participate in art activities beyond the middle school wheel offerings.

This club offers more in-depth learning experiences of historically important artists, art techniques, and creative processes.

The club will be presented in “Workshops” that are directly related to an individual artist and artist style.
In conjunction with the ongoing art projects all Middle school art students are welcome to participate in our open art studio time.
The open studio time is set aside for currently enrolled art students who would like/need individual assistance with class projects.

REQUIREMENTS OF CLUB
