7th and 8th Grade Art Club
The 7th and 8th grade Art Club is open to all DMS students that have a passion and appreciation for art, even if they do not take art electives. If you are interested in joining Art Club, read the information below and click this link to complete the 7th & 8th Grade Art Club application by Friday, August 19th. **Please note: 7th & 8th Grade Art Club will be limited to only 25 members. The first 25 applicants will be taken, while additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Students will be notified in writing if they made it into the club or if they are on the waiting list.
MEMBERSHIP Students do not have to be enrolled in an art elective to become a member, but it is important for potential art club members to have a strong interest in art. They must also be able to work well with other members, follow instructions, and behave in a mature and appropriate manner. **Students must have their own transportation home and be picked up from meetings on time.**
Meetings will be held on Thursday afternoons, twice a month. We start right after school and end promptly at 4:30. The first meeting will be on September 8th. A complete list of dates will go home with students before the first meeting. Students must have a signed Art Club contract/parent permission form in order to attend meetings. All members must have their own transportation home and be picked up from meetings on time.
WHAT WILL ART CLUB MEETINGS LOOK LIKE?
Art Club is not a class. There are no grades or deadlines, and members will not be penalized for missing meetings. In Art Club we experiment with a variety of art materials and tools in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Students are presented with a theme or project at each meeting and have the option to make art independently or with other club members.
There is a $10 non-refundable fee which pays for consumable art materials used throughout the year. Students must be paid members in order to attend Art Club meetings.
