Art Club

Art Club is again creating a Festival of Tree tree. Our theme has Mardi-Gras masks as ornaments. We are looking for gift cards, any kind, to put in one big mystery box under our tree. Please consider a contribution. All money from the sale of trees goes to non-profit Quad City Arts. They help fund art visits and activities for the schools in the Quad City area. We participate in their pastel competition every year.

Any student wanting to help create masks is welcome to join Art Club every Monday and Tuesday now through the week of November 11th. We will be assembling our tree November 12th.  Thanks!

Assumption Artists Spruce up Fejervary Park

Assumption Art students, both current and former, were hired by the nonprofit Quad-City Metro Arts Summer Youth Program to create a nursery rhyme-themed mural in Davenport’s Fejervary Park.

Under guidance from Davenport-based artist Sarah Robb, senior Marissa Shell, along with graduates Carolyn Pham ’16 and Tammy Truong ’17, helped paint an 85-foot mural that contains several panels adorned with scenes from nursery rhymes including “Hey Diddle Diddle” “Hickory Dickory Dock” and “Jack and Jill.” Students also painted large Adirondack chairs that will be placed at sites such as Vander Veer Botanical Park.

“This is my first job and it’s something I love to do,” Shell said. “And it’s one of the first times I get to see somewhat of what it might be like to do art in the future.” Read more
