• 7th and 8th Grade Art Club

    ⇨ To apply for 7th & 8th Grade Art Club, fill out the application linked here by Tues, Oct. 27th.

    Art Club is open to all 7th and 8th grade DMS students, even if they do not take art electives. Due to Covid precautions, 7th & 8th Grade Art Club will be limited to only 20 members this year. The first 20 applicants will be taken, while additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Students will be notified in writing (on 10/28) if they are in the club or on the waiting list.

    Meetings will also look a little different this year. We will be completely sketchbook and/or art journal based. We will still experiment with different art mediums and try fun materials, but we will work on a smaller scale and keep art work in our own sketchbooks. It is especially important for members to follow safe Covid guidelines by keeping masks on at all times, not sharing supplies, and maintaining a safe distance from other members. 

    There is a one-time non-refundable Art Club fee of $10 which pays for art supplies used during meetings. Students must be a paid member with a signed Art Club contract in order to attend meetings. 

    Art Club meetings are held twice a month in the DMS art studio (room 517) from 3:20 – 4:30.  Meeting dates will be announced.

    Membership requirements include:

    • Must have an interest in art.
    • Must use time for creating art.
    • Must not waste art materials and use them for intended purposes only.
    • Must demonstrate safe art studio behavior i.e. no horse play, goofing around, etc.
    • Must be respectful to others and maintain a positive social atmosphere.
    • Must have transportation after the meeting and be picked up on time.
