Art Club

The purpose of the Art club is to develop personal skills & techniques as artists and to promote the Visual Arts program at Bellevue West High School. The art club meets twice a month after school in the Art room. Art club is for anyone interested in Art; students do not have to be enrolled in an art class and the activities are not a repeat of projects done in class.

The activities are student driven providing students the opportunity to share their expertise in a variety of art media such as ceramics, (hand building, wheel throwing) painting, (watercolor & acrylic) various drawing activities, as well as fiber projects like papermaking, weaving and tie-dye.  The elected officers survey the group to compile a list of activities the club wants to do each year to plan the meetings.

The art club does a variety of service projects within the building to promote school spirit and the visual arts program at Bellevue West. A few examples include creating masks used in a pep rally for the East West game, painting wooden spinners used to rally the crowds at basketball games, and helping with homecoming signs throughout the building. The art club sponsors an art display in the media center each March for youth art month and helps to display the A.C. Lofton show for area high schools each spring. A variety of art show opportunities are available to members throughout the year.

Community service projects include working with the JROTC students to create and deliver Valentines for Veterans and doing face painting at elementary school carnivals.
