dear Educators,
I need help with my art club. After today's meeting I was ready to
dissolve it.
Clubs in my high school meet once a month during school for 30
minutes. Any student may join for a membership fee ($3).
This gives you a beginning budget. The purpose of clubs is to teach
students about clubs and civic organizations in real life. The Art club
has 65 members (not an intimate sized group). Every fall we have a half
day carnival where we raise money. Art club did afterschool workshops and
sucessfully sold sculpy beads and macrame hemp necklaces. We used some of
our money to buy Christmas gifts for a needy family (another school
tradition). We used some money to purchase sculpy for the membership. We
worked on this for several meetings. This month we attempted to look at 2
videos about crafts. My leadership is clueless about another project which
we can work on in 30 minutes. Of course, it has to be cheap and easy as
we meet in the cafeteria and must truck in all supplies, A third to half
the members are not art students so I think craft type exploration is more
suitable for everyone.
I am considering making flip books and making 3D glasses and
drawings that will appear 3D with the glasses. (My classes just finished a
short lesson on the 50's in conjunction with the postal service). I need
direction on the 3D glases and drawings project...and would like to hear
what has been successful with your art club. Last year we made
photomontaged picture frames without much sucess.
Thanks in are a great resource. Heidi McElroy
