FAHS Artifact Succeeds through Visuals

Posted on September 23, 2010 by


The art department is one of the most widely known departments in the Fleetwood Area School District, so when they decided to make a literary magazine, it was obviously destined for success. In 2002, the now famous Artifact was born to The Fleetwood High school. The Fleetwood Art Department wanted to put an artsy spin on creative writing by focusing on a more visual literary magazine.

Mrs. Chisdak, the advisor for the Artifact, says, “We saw a real connection between art and writing.” It seems that Chisdak was right. The Artifact has won two awards so far. They have won the Gold Rating from the PSPA, and they were also rated first by the ASPA.

Why is Artifact so incredibly successful? Mrs. Chisdak believes that most magazines focus on more of the writing in a literary magazine while the Artifact focuses on making it visually appealing as well literary. Also, Artifact includes a DVD and a CD.

Artifact has come a long way since 2002. It has proven itself to be an extremely prestigious publication. The students who are part of the club work very hard and are extremely talented.
