National Art Honor Society (NAHS)

  • Activity Description
    NAHS is a service organization, providing assistance to the school, the Art Department and the community. Last year we participated in Beautification Day, carved pumpkins for department offices, created found object flowers and displayed them throughout the school, painted display cubes for the department, assited in the set up and take down of art shows and created a mosaic mural at the Parkway Transportation Building.
    In the past we have done art projects with the preschool children, worked with the middle school kids and decorated a nursing home or hospital for holidays, done face painting at elementary school parties. Think about what you want to do.
