EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

 

Art Club


Art club is after school Monday for 4th and 5th grade and Thursday for 6-8th grade. Students do not have to be an art major to join the Art Club. We work with a variety of media and we do things like get involved in school plays, by painting set designs, make banners, signs, posters, lettering, portraits, caricatures, cartoons etc. It is a place for students who like art and to be with other students who feel the same and learn from one another. It is also a place for art students who want more time to perfect their skills. The club sessions are over at 4:30pm and students must have a ride home to join. Sign up forms are located in the Art Room.
