Hi. I have an art club of only 5th graders. I have two sessions of 25 that
last 7 weeks each. After turning in permission slips, if I have too many, I
draw names out like a lottery.

I have another question for all you experienced Art Teachers. I've been
leading Art Club at my school for the past few years. What I want is a core
group of about 20 kids who are regular attenders and eager to make art.
What I've had in the past is about 35-40 kids signed up and attendance is
sporadic. Basically, some meetings I have 15 kids come and other meetings
all 35-40 of them come. Now the problem I have is that it is hard to have
continuity when they don't all come regularly. And the days that all of
them come, it is really crowded. How do you run art club? Do you have
unlimited sign up? Do they have to have a recommendation or approval to
join? How many kids do you have in your art club? I'm thinking of having
the kids fill out an application and then choosing about 20 kids (who aren't
signed up for 5 other clubs) to be a member. That way, I'll have a group of
more dedicated kids and we'll be able to accomplish bigger projects (like a
mural, etc.). What do you think? I don't want to exclude anyone who really
really wants to join.
