Art Club

Cityside Art Club
  • Art Club is open to any 6th, 7th or 8th grade student at Cityside Middle School. 
  • We generally have three meetings a month.  One session is for 6th grade only, one session is for 7th and 8th grade students, and the third is an open studio time for all grades.  New projects will not be offered for an open studio session; this is a time to finish projects from earlier sessions or to create something you've been wanting to try out.  Materials are not provided for new projects during open studio. 
  • Art Club meets in the Art room, (room 124) after school until 4:00 pm.  Once students have signed in, they will be expected to stay with our group until 4 unless a parent indicates that they need to leave early.
  • Projects will be determined by the group. Suggested projects are listed but these are subject to change based on student interest.  Some projects may require students to contribute a small fee or to bring in materials.
  • Students may attend one or all sessions. Students will need to sign up prior to the meetings in order to ensure that materials are available for them.  Students are welcome to attend ARt Club to work on their own drawings instead of our projects, but my focus will be on the project of the day, not on giving individual feedback for student work.
  • Students may sign up by emailing that they plan to attend. My email is jkiwiet@zps.org.  Students may also stop by my room to sign up.
