Art Club (Mrs. Fran Kane)
The Art Club exists in the community to enrich the art and social life of our students. The Art Club is also the sponsor of an art scholarship. The club raises funds to offer a junior or senior art student money to apply toward tuition. Any student may participate. The experience is very fulfilling. A club member is eligible to letter in fine arts if the student is actively taking fine arts classes, attends 8 meetings within a school year, has been a club member for two consecutive years and maintains a 2.8 GPA.
If you are interested in sharing and learning artistic skills as well as fit art into your busy schedule then this is the club for you. Meetings are held each month in the art room. Art Club students have made many murals throughout the school. Talent is not a requirement. If you don't have time in your schedule for fine arts and want to get involved and make new friends the Art Club is waiting for you.
