National Art Honor Society

Purpose: National Art Honor Society (NAHS) is designed specifically for high school students in grades 9-12. In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program specifically for high school students, for the purpose of inspiring and recognizing those students who have shown an outstanding ability in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in working toward the attainment of the highest standards in art areas, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community.

Projects: Throughout the year each student is required to participate in a service project, community project, and an individual project.  The following are some projects that we are currently working on or have completed: Building 7 Ceiling Tile Paintings, Painting the Set for the Musical, Plastic Men, Dove Paintings, Caring Tree, and more.

Membership: Membership is open to all students in 9th-12th grade. Members must have a minimum of one semester in the fine arts and maintain at least a “B” average.
