Assumption Art Club News

A big thank you goes out to Assumption Art Club for service projects completed. Students created kite props for St.Paul’s musical Mary Poppins. Students also painted an Assumption-themed bags game donated from Mr. Dave Simpson to April Knight. Art Club members who worked on the projects included: Kenneth Nguyen, Marissa Shell, Alexisciel Dinh, Hannah Lerch and Amanda Herrington.

April Knight was also the benefactor of a couple more artistic endeavors. Gracie Miller beautifully painted a round serving platter in a floral bouquet theme. Advanced Graphic Art students Marissa Shell, Pamela Moya and Trenton McDonough teamed up to create a 3-D printed chess set which was auctioned off at April Knight as well.

Thank you to all these creative students who donated their time and talents to worthy causes.

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!
