Important Information About the Elementary School Art Club

The purpose of Ivy Hawn Art Club is to allow students, who express a higher level of interest in art, to have extra time to create and develop their artistic skill. Having less students than a regular classroom, the art club provides them with more one-on-one instruction. It should be a place where students, through focused instruction, can make artwork in a more relaxed environment and take things at their own pace. Students who join can expect to receive enriched instruction, create art pieces that we typically would not create within the classroom, and have more choices in what they want to create.

The art club is open to all students from 3rd through 5th grade. An application process is used to determine who will be accepted into art club.  Students not initially accepted will be placed on a waiting list. Should a student drop out of art club, a student from the waiting list will have the opportunity to join.
