Art Club


All students are welcome and encouraged to attend - Art Club is about having fun and exploring new forms of art with your friends and fellow artists. By sharing ideas and learning from each other, we can all grow into amazing creative thinkers!


The FMS Art Club is a place for young artists to explore new art forms and develop their skills across a variety of mediums. There are often suggested projects and lessons each week, such as learning about still life drawings and using charcoal, but students are also free to choose to work on their own personal projects instead.


We make large scale collaborative artworks as well as smaller scale individual pieces, and some of our art has been displayed around the school and at school events!


Students have a voice in deciding what kinds of projects or materials we work with each week, and are involved in all decision making processes.

Club Meeting Times: Thursdays and Fridays after school from 3:30-5:00 in Room 203

Mission Statement (student-created):

club where ALL are welcomeaccepted and supported. We do a variety of activities each meeting, which always includes a time in which students can share their “good, great, bad and ugly” from the past week. The GLASS Club also organizes Freedom’s Day of Silence in April. One more activity that the students love every week is drawing positive pictures and aspirations on my white board. The goal of the GLASS Club is to provide students with a safe place to hang out, make friends and feel accepted for at least one hour each week.
