NAHS Hosts 2022 Art Event

Posted on May 25, 2022 by


On 7 May 2022, Fleetwood Area High School’s National Art Honor Society hosted the annual Art Event at the Fleetwood Community Center. The event ran from 12:00 to 4:00 pm and had crafts for elementary to middle school-aged children, as well as vendors and live music from members of the community.

Members of the National Art Honor Society and other art students planned and ran seven “Creation Stations” for members of the community, primarily small children, to undertake. Creation Stations are the craft tables planned from start to finish by the NAHS students. This year’s event featured UFO and alien crafts, rock painting, and sticker-making. There was also a sidewalk chalk station outside the community center.

The event also had a used book sale, artist vendors, live music by Fleetwood students and others, and light refreshments.

In the past, the Art Event was hosted at the Fleetwood Area High School. Regardless of location, the project has always been a great way for art students and members of NAHS to work together and bond over the months of planning.

“It is a great thing to get the high school and local adults and families to come out and feel like they are a part of the community. The arts are a really great way to unify communities to help them feel supported,” NAHS Advisor Mrs. Annie Shrawder said.

This is Shrawder’s first year teaching at Fleetwood; the Art Event was something new for her and her students to bond over together. The students all tried their best to do their fair share in the planning and hosting. The turnout was substantial, as expected from every Art Event, and everyone felt that it had been a very successful year for the Art Department.
