Art Club – Middle School

Welcome to the Middle School Art Club

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.
