State of the Art: Club

If you know Mrs. Chaikin, then you know how passionate she is about art and due to this passion, Chaikin started a Cy Creek Art Club for all to join..
Most people might think that since they cannot draw or are not too creative, they cannot be in an art club. Chaikin created the art club in order for students to overcome the thought that they cannot “art.”
Art club is about expanding your mind and seeing what you can create while using a part of your brain you have not used in a while, or ever before.

Chaikin stated in a recent meeting, “just grab people. I don’t care if they’re good at art or not, bring them in.” Showing that she was willing to accept all students, no matter their talents.

Art Club meets every Wednesday from 2:55 to 3:30 p.m.

During that time different events are planned, new projects are created, and a social atmosphere where everyone is welcome drifts through the air. The most recent project Art Club finished was custom pins for the school lanyards.

Art Club has big plans, with the possibility of selling at the Fall Festival, doing face paintings locally, and offering commission pieces to the student body.

Art Club does not discriminate against your level, as you can grow as a beginning artist, or if you are experienced, pick up new techniques needed in the field.

Aside from just being another club, the Art Club is also in conjunction with the National Art Honor Society. Being a part of this looks great on college applications and, if you’re looking for a career in art, looks extremely good on resumes.

If you need even more information, you can join Chaikin’s remind: @cc-artclub to 81010

Chaikin is waiting for anyone and everyone to join the art club. Join now and become better as a student artist!
