I don't remember if I have ever written much about being a member of the Art Club here at Judson College, but it is one of my many extracurricular activities. This is my second year as an Art Club member and I was actually elected to serve as the treasurer for this year.
I have always had a love for art, or I guess more accurately, being creative, so I was really excited when theArt Club became more active on campus last year. It has been a great experience, having exposure to different types of art and techniques, getting to know and hang out with some really awesome Judson Girls that I probably wouldn't have known very well otherwise, and having the opportunity to serve Judson College through the club.
Some of the things we have gotten to do on campus for the school are: print t-shirts for other clubs and organizations, and make prints with prospective students during events like preview days and scholarship days. We also have a number of other opportunities coming up in the future. Unfortunately, I don'tremember what they all are. One of them that I do remember though is the upcoming scholarship day on February 19! Rather then making screen prints with the prospective students like we have in the past, we are planning on demonstrating another type of art that is created by the students here at Judson. Exactly what we are going to do is a secret, to only be reveled on scholarship day. So, if you are not already signed up, you should consider visiting our gorgeous campus and checking out not only what the Art Club has to offer, but what the other clubs and the rest of the school has to offer to the students of Judson College.
Like I have said, the Art Club is pretty active here on campus, but we have started something this semester to help us be more active in our community...
One of the new areas of study offered here at Judson is graphic design, and it is something that a number of us, including myself, are involved in. So, the project that we have undertaken is to develop and maintain a website that promotes the city of marion and the businesses that are located here. The website will be a central hub, so to speak, that provides viewers with core information about our community, what it has to offer, and what is currently going on. Our goal for this website is to attract interest and business to this area.
The website is still under construction, but it is live so you should stop by and check it out at www.marionmatters.com . And don't forget to keep checking back to see the progress!
