The Conner High School Art Club consists of High School students who love the Arts! Many students were not able to get into the art class they requested and this is their outlet to continue to grow and learn.
The club meets Tuesday's after school on a regular basis to hold meetings.
The 2017-2018 school year we are focusing on student involvement. Students will be provided the opportunities to learn drawing/painting/sculpture techniques.
Check back weekly for club updates!

8/26: Preparing for the Home Coming Parade!
To get everything completed in a timely manor, club members split into groups to divide and conquer the tasks at hand. One group worked on the art club banner for the parade. With the background completed the a week before, they stenciled out "DREAM CREATE INSPIRE" and painted black around it. Another group worked on posters. One group made a poster for the grand marshall, another for our homecoming candidate Sammy Ward, another, general art club posters to walk with. Those members who remained, worked on individual signs to be held with paint sticks. All signs followed the homecoming theme "words to live by"
10/3: Swipe Art Painting
At the meeting after school on october 3rd, we experimented with a new style of painting called "swipe painting." Asimple and abstract way of painting. It was a great creative exercise. To make these paintings, art club members put drops of paint of whatever color they chose directly onto the paper. Once the desired amount of paint was on the poster size paper, members used a square of cardboard, pressed the edges onto the paper and moved it across the surface, dragging the paint with it. Each member was able to create 2-3 paintings. All very unique and create!
