Advanced Art Club
For the first time we will be offering an art club for fourth and fifth grade students that have already developed a strong foundation in their artistic skills. The advanced art club is designed to help the students continue to grow in their art skills while exploring their own creative ideas. During the advance art club, students will be able to choose their own subject matter, artistic style, and art medium to use in creating their original works of art. As the teacher, I will be there to teach them the skills and techniques needed to successfully apply the mediums and to help them make artistic choices that will bring their creative ideas to life. Students wanting to join the Advanced Art Club will need to submit an application containing a sample work of art.
This club will meet in the morning before school from 7:30 till 8:30, the day is still to be determined.
