As school comes back into session, my thoughts immediately turn to ART, and I (Mrs. Mason) invite you to give your student the opportunity to join the Art Club sponsored by Georgetown College and the college students in the Art Education class instructed by Leah Castleman, Jeanette Tesmer, and myself. As in the past, Art Club participation is FREE. If you have an interested student, we are excited about the possibility of working with their creativity and aiding in furthering their artist ability. We ask that you look over the following information and attend the brief Parent Meeting on Tuesday, September 9th at 5pm in the Wilson Art Building located on Georgetown College’s campus (the corner of E. College and Mulberry). We are happy to answer any question that should arise so feel free to contact any of the instructors.

Although approved by Garth Elementary, Art Club is not sponsored by the school so you must fill out the Submission Form at the bottom of the page by Wednesday, September 3rd. If you have any trouble with the form please email jeanette_tesmer@georgetowncollege.edu. We will also be contacting your student’s homeroom teacher for a recommendation. You are responsible for transportation of your student from Garth Elementary and to the Wilson Art Building before 3:30pm. No student will be permitted to walk alone from one building to the other. I, Mrs. Mason will be waiting for your student at the Wilson Art Building.
