The high school art club has some exciting plans in store for this year. Art teachers Lisa Hayes and Paul Moten will be working with the new student officers. Recently elected a officers are President Vicky Yeung, senior, Vice President Sabrina Gonzales, junior, Secretary Miguel Romero, senior, and Parliamentarian, Daniel Lopez, junior.
“We still need to do another election for treasurer, so we’ll have that done soon,” Ms. Hayes said.
The elected officers are excited to work with one another in order to spread the awareness of the artistic talent inside of Desoto High School.
“I’m excited because the group of students in art club and art honor society are a much different group than the ones in academic UIL or the typical AP setting,” President Yeung, senior, said.
The artists involved in the art club should be prepared for some packed projects and activities. Ms. Hayes and Yeung are setting expectations and goals in order to become a successful organization. The first goal is to increase the number of people in art club.
“My first objective for the newly elected people is for them to try to get more people to join,” Ms. Hayes said.
After the club raises the number of people in attendance to meetings, Ms. Hayes and the officers will be looking for ways to enhance the school. There are several different plans for making parts of the school more artistically interesting.
“I plan to have murals around the school, and I’d like to decorate the ceiling tiles of the art rooms,” Yeung said.
Additionally, the art club may possibly be in charge of the upcoming art shows. The art teachers and club officers are planning art shows in order to officially display the talents of artists and different ways of expressing themselves. Whether there’ll be only a few artists entered, the shows will be packed with interesting pieces of individuality.
“We’re going to have another art show at the end of the year, and it’s going to be a big one here at the high school;” Ms. Hayes said, “I think it’s going to be on May 9th and the officers may possibly help all the teachers get the artwork set up.”
