The Club Art Studio is an entire room dedicated to Boys & Girls Clubs of America's core program area, "The Arts". The brightly decorated space provides members with professional quality art supplies. Our Fine Arts Coordinator, Jocelyn, holds a bachelors degree in arts education.
Programs in The Arts include:
National Fine Arts:
National Fine Arts is a year-round program that encourages artistic expression among Club members ages 6-18 through drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, mixed media and sculpture displayed at local and regional exhibits. A panel of distinguished local artists judge art pieces and select winners that are then submitted to the National Fine Arts Exhibit. Winners of the national contest have their work displayed throughout the year at BGCA events, including the annual National Conference. Each winning work is featured in a virtual gallery on BGCA's website.
2016/17 Local Fine Arts Exhibit & Images Makers Photography Contest: See our lobby transformed into a gallery for this year's Art competitions! Club members have been working hard for the past 4 months to put together this incredible 196 piece show & we would like to invite our families, friends, & neighbors to visit our local display & show their support for Art, After-school!
Public Viewing Hours:
Monday 1/9 - Friday 1/13
Members ages 10 and up meet weekly to create large scale works of art. The program focuses on the technique and process of mural creation, from a small sketch all the way through enlargement and painting the murals on to the walls of the Boys & Girls Club. Mural Club is an opportunity for members to leave their mark on the Club forever!
Teen Paint Night: On Wednesday nights, Jocelyn hosts a guided pant night for teens. Club members can participate for free, and non-Club members can join in for just $2. All supplies are provided and each participant leaves with a complete painting.
