I sponsor a NAHS chapter, and believe it is a very important opportunity
for some of our youth. I plan some functions and activities for the
group, but also involve the NAHS Council comprised from the group for
making decisions about what they will do. We hold our monthly meetngs
at local art museums, galleries and art centers; have been involved with
the Downtown Gallery Hop; won a cash prize last year for a creative
youth group booth at the Fair; raised hundreds of $'s for Habitat for
Humanity by creating artful birdhouses for their fundraiser
"Birdfest"...which many professional artists also participate in; have
participated in local arts organizations functions as needed or
requested, workshop assistance etc.
Last Winter>Spring we painted a mural for a local hospital's dining
area, about 9'x21'. The honorarium provided the group with enough funds
to hire a professional photographer to take a quality photo and an 8x10
print for each student's portfolio.
Our local arts council supported us by providing an exhibition and
reception in a professional gallery space. (This was for all local
I am hoping this year we can start to take some more educational trips,
statewide and out-of-state to museums and sketching/studio trips.
Hope this helps to give you some ideas. Sharon Vuolo is the NAHS
contact at NAEA, I'm sure she can send you some info.
