I have been an Art teacher for a year and a half. Since my half a year starting in January I have created an Art Club for our High School in Ozona Texas. The first thing I did (after permission was granted) was write a consitution, then secondly I typed a parent consent form for students to sign. I'd send these to you, but it will take a day (since yesterday I accidentally deleted my artclub file, aghhh!).
Projects we are planning on doing this year:
3 fundraisers for supplies, field trip, and a possible scholarship.
We are lucky at the school I work because even though it is a rural community, the school board granted me purchase of a new kiln.
So one fundraiser I will be doing is a "Ceramic Bowl Auction" which is where we are planning on making around 50+ bowls and serving them chili or brisket(a parent has offered to help with brisket, or else I would say no). And everyone here loves food, and the parents and older people are very supportive.
The other fundraisers will be to sell candles and a possible cake walk at our Halloween festival(again with the food, lol!).
Projects we are planning to participate in other than the ceramic bowl making is painting our first mural in my classroom (the wall is canvas in the middle). After that we have been asked to paint a mural at our town's civic center.
During my student teaching the school I worked for made Christmas wrapping paper with stamps and large craft paper. When I was in college we had a Student Art Show(to buy the artworks) hosted by the Art Club and we also hosted/created a Haunted House. The AG actually does this here at my school, and ranks in A LOT of MONEY!
Hope that helps, feel free to email me at

Thanks in advance! Any fabulous club projects would also be appreciated. We're going to make apple head dolls as our first project. Thanks! ALi k-4
