• The Art Club at JMS welcomes all students with a passion for art, regardless of whether they are enrolled in art electives. The club has a maximum capacity of 25 members, with the first 25 applicants accepted and any additional applicants placed on a waiting list. Notification of acceptance or placement on the waiting list will be communicated in writing to students. Application forms will be accessible online once the school year begins in August. Reminders about the application process will occur through the school's social media platforms, morning announcements, and posters displayed throughout the school.


    Students do not have to be enrolled in an art elective to become a member, but potential art club members must have a strong interest in art. They must also be able to work well with other members, follow instructions, and behave appropriately in the art studio. Students must have a signed Art Club contract/parent permission form to attend meetings. Students must have their own transportation home and be picked up from meetings on time.


    Meetings will be held on Wednesday afternoons twice a month. We start right after school and end promptly at 4:30. Specific dates will be determined closer to the start of the school year. 


    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 various 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. Club members may also have the opportunity to be involved in art contests, community service projects, and school beautification.

    • FEE

    Each member pays a non-refundable fee of $15, which pays for the Art Club t-shirt and consumable art materials used throughout the year. Students must be paid members to attend Art Club meetings.
