Student Spotlight: Art Club

May’s Student Spotlight is Bancroft Elementary School’s Art Club. Art Club runs in two sessions – fall and spring – and projects vary by session. Throughout their time in Art Club, students use a variety of art mediums including clay, pencils, and paint. Each session begins with a large group project that adorns the hallways of the schools. Students work together in small groups to create one large project. This year club members made turtles, lightening bugs, snakes, and more to decorate for the book fair’s camping theme. Currently, the young artists are making Pharaoh Masks using paper mache.
