National Art Honor Society

NAHS meets every Tuesday for 2:15 - 3:15 in Rm. 151

NAHS is designed specifically for high school students. In 1978, the National Art Education Association (NAEA) began the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) program specifically for high school students, for the purpose of inspiring and recognizing those students who have shown an outstanding ability in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in working toward the attainment of the highest standards in art areas, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community. Art related community activities including putting up art displays throughout the building, designing and creating posters and banners as requested by teachers and/or other clubs, making bowls for Empty Bowls Fundraiser for Grassroots, conducting drawing sessions on selected Fridays, and art exhibitions of student artwork. Membership in the WL NAHS chapter is based on art scholarship, service and character. In order to be eligible for membership students should be enrolled in a Art 1 or higher and maintain a B average in all classes. If you would like to be considered for membership fill out and return an application form (available in Rm 151) and have it signed by your art teacher. There are yearly dues, currently, $10.00 and a can of food for Grassroots Organization. WL NAHS is a great place to meet new friends who have a special interest in art and provides opportunities for artistic endeavors throughout the Wilde Lake community. Students who complete sixty hours of service throughout their high school career proudly wear their honor cords for graduation. There are several specific scholarship opportunities available to NAHS students planning on studying art in college.
