The Intermediate Art Club is open to 4th, 5th, and 6th Grade students, and is led by Ms. Caffall, one of our 6th grade teachers. With the exception of our first project, this will be a student-led club experience. This means that the club members will present art ideas they would like to explore, and we will plan our projects based on their interests. I will share the basic skills for each project and be available as a guide as each student uses his or her imagination and creativity to complete an original work of art. We will meet in Room 119 (Ms.Caffall’s room) on scheduled Thursdays. Due to limited space and the small group nature of this club, membership will be limited to 24 students.

We are excited to present Dad’s Club this year. Stayed tuned for information on our 1st all father’s hosted event on campus this fall!

Additional Clubs will be announced via the school website and through school email.
