Art club offers creative outlet

REED CITY — Students who love creating art and want to experience a variety of different mediums have the opportunity to do so in the Reed City Middle School Art Club.

The club meets one or two times a month throughout the school year, and students learn about famous artists and art from other cultures. Members create art by delving into mediums that they do not have enough time to thoroughly explore during regular art class.

This year, the group has worked with watercolor, pen and ink, oil pastels, chalk pastels and clay. Students have the opportunity to artistically display their art on bulletin boards or in the school hallways. Students also have the privilege of watching real artists at work. In May, retired Cadillac high school art teacher Chris Fisher will return to the art club session to demonstrate how she creates her lamp work beads with a glass rod and a torch. Each student will have the opportunity to create their own bead with Mrs. Fisher’s expert guidance.
