Art Club is in its seventh year  at Fowlerville High School. Anyone may join us; you do not have to be taking an art class. You do need to have a love for the arts, our school and helping people. We meet twice a month after school for one hour. The group decides on what day after school will work out best for them. There is no cost, but I would like to have T-shirts this year for a minimal fee. Activities we participated in last year were:

1.     Painted the PAC windows for Halloween and Christmas
2.     Created posters for advertising the Fall Musical
3.     Did lessons in drawing, painting, and other mediums
4.     Splatter painting which is hung up in our school.
5.     Feast of the Arts- demonstrating art concepts and helping with the kids tables.
6.     Helped organize and run the Smith Art Club for 6 weeks
7.     Face painting at the Smith Picnic

Events to add this year are:
1.     Field trip to an art museum
2.     Art Prize
3.     Create another mural
4.     Helping celebrate Arts Month of March with art activities for all
5.     Help with a JH Art Club
6.     Any other art activity the school asks us to do

We will also have an open studio, for those who have a creative side and want to create.

Our club offers a variety of activities from speed chess and rated games to lectures by Chess Masters and tournament play. The club will cater to players of all types - recreational players as well as serious tournament players. Every member is important to the success of the club. Evidence shows that player benefits include improvement in literary, math, critical thinking, and life skills - including sustained focus, conflict resolution, respect, and more.
