The Art/Portfolio Club is a group of students who want to create
artwork beyond the regular school day. The club meets weekly and is
designed for artists who want to experiment with all types of media.
The club is also a valuable meeting place to develop portfolios for
NAHS and college admission.
NATIONAL ART HONOR SOCIETY
The National Art Honor Society (N.A.H.S.) is a national club whose
activities consist mainly of providing art services for the school
and community as an extension of the curriculum. Artistic students
have the opportunity to simultaneously develop their talents and
contribute to the community. Activities include creating murals,
holiday window painting, visiting museums, building the Haunted
House for Halloween and fund raising activities. The funds raised by
N.A.H.S. will be used for a scholarship and also distributed to
various charities. Candidates for membership must be in 10th grade,
enrolled in an art course, completed Studio A and Studio B and
maintain an average of 88 or higher in their art courses. Admission
is also based on evaluation of an art portfolio, which is submitted
at the start of the new school year.
