Art Room Art Club embraces and supports our environment at Jefferson Elementary by giving our students the opportunity to use a variety of mediums, to imagine, plan, and create. Students have the opportunity to take their creations to a higher level. The mission of Art Club is to foster an awareness of the importance and presence of art and beauty in nature and the world around us by exploring, examining, imagining, designing, and constructing. What does this club offer? Art Club members gain a host of benefits. Students gain experience and sharpen life skills such as teamwork, problem solving, responsibility, and community involvement. Participation in this club could also be a springboard that sparks a student’s interest to pursue an art based career such as architecture, set design, photography, plastic surgery, book illustration, interior design, jewelry design, graphic arts, fashion, and many more.
