Setting up an Art Club

I want to set up an art club in my Junior High. Currently only 8th
graders are allowed to take art, so I want to include 7th also. I'm
really uncertain on how to set it up and what kind of projects to do.
WouldI just put an announcement in the bulletins saying anyone interested show
up. What if 80 people came?? How would I limit??I don't want to be just
having another class after school for no pay--I would like the students to
manage it but I'm not sure how. Money for supplies would have to come
from the students--perhaps that is the limit I'm looking for. How much
would be reasonable??I loved the idea of having an art club do a gallery
show each month. There is no extra space anywhere in our school and the
walls are utterly plain and gray and with blue carpet up about 5 feet and
gray lockers everywhere. It's so institutional. I was thinking about
having the club design giant cardboard and paper mache sculptures to put
in the hallways--I'm a bit concerned that they'd get smashed since there
are 800 kids running though a school build for 500. Any great ideas that
anyone could pass on will be greatly appreciated!! Sid
