The Artist's Club
The South High Art Club is open to all students who want to be creative. Our art club meets at least once a month, with more meetings if a project requires it. Students design, draw and paint banners for school functions as well as produce artwork using unique materials to stretch and grow their creativity. This club also allows students who don't have an art class in their schedules to still be able to express themselves creatively. Our club allows students grades 9-12 to work together and grow as artists.
