7th and 8th Grade Art Club
7th and 8th Grade Art Club application were due by September 3rd. The application window has now closed and we are no longer accepting application for the 2021/2022 school year.
Art Club is open to all 7th and 8th grade DMS students, even if they do not take art electives. 7th & 8th Grade Art Club is limited to 20 members. The first 20 applicants will be taken, while additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Students will be notified in writing if they are in the club or on the waiting list.
Art Club is completely sketchbook and/or art journal based. We will 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. Students must provide their own sketchbook and bring it to the meeting.
There is a one-time non-refundable Art Club fee of $10 which pays for art supplies used during meetings throughout the year. 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 on Thursdays in the Studio 517 (room 517) from 3:20 – 4:30. The first meeting will be September 9th. A full list of meeting dates will be given to members at the first meeting.

- 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.
