Students Sign Up For Art Club Starting Next Year

Ava Miller
Students attend an Art Club interest meeting during academic period in art teacher Judith Brown’s classroom.

Any students with a creative eye and love for art are encouraged to join the Art Club that will start in August. Students can currently sign up with art teacher Judith Brown. 

“We want to provide a safe place for student artists to thrive in art and share our love of art within our community,” Brown said. “Join Art Club if you want to spread art awareness to our school and community.” 

Art club will meet anywhere from once a month to every two weeks after school in the art room. Members will have a 15 to 20 minute allotted time to talk about their new ideas or opportunities. Afterward, the rest of the meeting will be for working on art. 

“Creating art is very satisfying to me,” junior Chesley Breuer said. “I like making my ideas become something tangible and with art I can just manipulate different mediums how I want.” 

Members are expected to participate in one act of community service provided by Art Club per semester, dedicate 3 hours to Art Club per semester, and only miss 2 meetings per semester. 

“I think it will be fun for students,” Breuer said. “Even those who might not be interested in art, or aren’t in an art class to begin with, can join and maybe find something they love to do that brings them peace or fulfillment.”

Fundraising will be a massive part of this Club, and Brown has already been compiling some ideas to get other school groups and the community involved while also bringing in money for the club. 

“When I had my art studio, I was always doing, like, funky fundraisers and reaching out to the community,” Brown said. “I had talked to Chef about doing it before, but maybe culinary could come in and do mini orders and mini drinks, and all of the artwork is mini. Whenever I had my studio, we did what was called a 12 by 12, where there’s a theme, and we gave out 12 by 12 canvases. Everybody creates based on that theme, and then we have an art show. I’ve even got the theater department involved and had living sculptures.”

Art Club is a part of the National Art Honor Society. The organization requires annual dues that students must pay. 

“Our chapter is called Lampasas National Art Honor Society,” Brown said. “This is a national organization of Art Club members. Students within LNAHS have meeting, grade and community service requirements. Students within LNAHS can add their involvement on college and job applications.” 

Students who are in upper level art classes, don’t have to pay for art club supplies since that is covered in their school art courses, but those who are in Art 1 or no art class at all have to bring their supplies. 

“If you are in an upper level art class, you are already paying an art fee, so you will not have to pay for any of your art supplies as long as I have them,” Brown said. “If you want other art supplies you have to bring them in.”

Breuer said this club will give students a chance to grow and show off their talent through the art they create

“I plan on finding new interests and completing more of my projects, as well as showing the school what the art students can do,” Breuer said. “You never know what medium you could get interested in or what could come from exploring new things.”
