Lenhert and the other art teachers decided to combine after-school art clubs into a single club, consisting of several gifted students, eager to express their artistic ability in weekly assignments ranging from bamboo stick painting to mug sculpting.
“[We made the] change from individual clubs to one single Art Space because of the desire for more structure considering the increasingly tightened budget,” Lenhert said.
Heather Fatino, junior, is a member of this group. Fatino said she enjoys excercising her privelage of creating artful propaganda.
“I plan to carve me a pumpkin this week,” said Fatino. “We do all kinds of unique things and it’s just a lot of fun.”
Lenhert said she believes it is a great opportunity to have fun with other students while recieving a broad education of art and a chance to experience variety in the art field.
“[That] is the primary goal of Art Space,” she said.
