Last year some of my students started an art club. This year the club membership is almost entirely different because several active club members graduated. The new group met last week to elect officers and complete the official paperwork for the club and already had roughly 30 students express and interest in the club and sign up for our e-mail list.
The students are planning guest artists, matting workshops, visits to local galleries and more. They are also looking to reach out to schools, and connect with artists and art organizations in the community. Last week we started a Facebook Page for YVCC Art Club. "Like" the page to keep up with our events and happenings, or just to show your support for YVCC art club.
