The 2014-2015 school year was a memorable year. By officers independently leading members to opportunities for service projects, members successfully brought art to the school and community. Our multi-talented President Megan Clelan kicked off the year with original graphics for the marching band. We painted faces again to celebrate Elkton Pride during Spirit Week, but this time we added henna tattoos. They were so popular teachers were standing in line to get them with the students. We were a part of a window painting fundraiser again at our local Chick-Fil-A restaurant. NAHSers competed with their own painted holiday themed window decorations. We won second place this year and would never have gotten it done if it wasn't for Megan and Mrs. Clelan, who stayed until it was completed. We raised the $500 to get picnic tables made by our tech department for the art room patios. Thanks to Mrs. Coffey and Mr. Smeltzer creating a collaboration between the art, science, and tech departments, a warm inviting aesthetic was made at the auditorium entrance. Elise Dillion worked with the environmental club, making a sign for the garden, environmental club planted and the benches made by the tech department. Students also earned hours with Mrs. White creating and painting play props as well as decorations for the after prom, which is hosted by a local parent group. Again the art department worked together to select artists of the month and Elise Dillion, with her amazing spirit, creative mind, and outstanding AP portfolio work was selected, unanimously, as Artist of the Year and recognized at senior awards night.
