Art Club at Windy Hill Middle is a fun way to engage with the arts after school! We rotate between working on personal/passion projects, and teacher-led projects.
Art Club is projected to begin in early September (right after Labor Day).
Art Club meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month (with a few exceptions), from 4:15-5:30pm, with pick up in the bus loop out front promptly at 5:30pm.
There is a required $15 fee for Art Club membership to help cover costs of supplies and a t-shirt for the year. This can be paid online (preferred) or in person once the new school year begins.
The Art Elective
Art class at WHMS is traditionally a 6th grade enrichment class.
We utilize a rotating art curriculum from the district, and for the 2021-2022 school year our curriculum will be based on two-dimensional (2D) art, which means lots of drawing and painting, as well as other two-dimensional media such as printmaking and photography!
The 2021-22 school year will also begin a new Advanced Art Class for 7th and 8th graders to work on technique and skill development, as well as start to prepare a portfolio of work for high school and beyond. East Ridge High requires incoming freshmen to apply for art class with a strong portfolio of work. As a 6th grader this coming school year, I will have a better opportunity to gauge your interest and skill level so that I can better prepare you for the Advanced Art class in 7th or 8th grade. The sixth grade art enrichment class is not necessarily a prerequisite for the advanced class, but would be incredibly helpful.
