In your spare time do you like to draw? paint? do crafts? decorate?
If yes, the Art Club welcomes you to join them as they explore a variety of mediums. The group collectively decides what projects they are interested in pursuing during the year and the moderator offers helpful instruction and advice. The Club’s work is often exhibited at local libraries as well as at institutions such as the Kessler Institute and corporations like ADP. Art Club participates in The Memory Project and creates personal portraits for youth from Ethiopia and Bolivia who have faced substantial challenges of neglect, abuse, loss of parents and extreme poverty.

Additionally, the Art Club helps support a variety of school activities including:
- Creating the set designs for the Mount’s theatrical productions
- Decorating for Halloween
Many of our club members have gone on to such art schools as the Rhode Island School of Design, Pratt Institute, the Savannah College of Art and Design, School of Visual Arts, and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
