Art Club (Ms. Walloch, Tuesdays, Room C105)
Exposure to the Arts is a vital part of Beehive Science and Technology Academy. We understand that our technological world progresses by innovation and creativity. All students benefit by creative exploration and development. To help strengthen our students’ abilities and help them prepare for their future through scholarships we are creating our Art Club. In this club we will meet once in a week to encourage students to further their abilities in the visual arts. Students will choose media and subject to explore in a deeper way than is possible in a 45-minute class time. They will have the opportunity to enter local and national scholarship contests and possibly earn a scholarship. During each term club members will donate art to be sold at school sponsored functions to help pay for supplies for the Art Club.Regardless of what they pursue, each student will find greater connection and fulfillment through the creation and refinement of the visual art they produce through the Art Club.In order to cover the cost of supplies we will charge a $20 club fee.
