The Arts program provides Club members with an educational, engaging and fun experience, exposing them to the arts. The Arts allows young people to express their creativity and imagination. Young people who participate in an art program exhibit stronger writing and reading skills, self-confidence, a sense of worth, respect and consideration for others, and the ability to identify and express emotions.
Local, Regional, and National Art Contest
We hosted a local art contest that will include artwork from our club kids at Sanville, Patrick Henry, Albert Harris Elementary, and the Teen Center on January 9th. The community came in at anytime on this day to vote on the artwork from our club kids. We had refreshments from 5-7PM for all guests who came and voted on the artwork during this time. 7 pieces of artwork was chosen at the local level sent to be judged on the Regional level. If chosen at the Regional level, the artwork will be sent to National Competition.
