Art Club Profile

San Mateo High has many opportunities for student artists to express their creativity and share their talent, such as the variety of art classes offered here. Joining Art Club is another way students can be involved with art and showcase their talent.

Art Club organizes the colorful Chalk Fest every year. The Chalk Fest is an annual event that invites all Bearcats to participate in a project where students use vibrant-colored chalk to recreate images in the quad.

This year, the Art Club is shifting its focus. “What’s different about this year is more collaboration and more emphasis on art history,” said Art Club President Vi Bautista.

Club meetings typically run like this: a student gives a presentation about a subject they are interested in, and the next meeting the club work together on an art project inspired by the style they learned about in the presentation.

By striking a balance between learning art history and creating art, more people, regardless of their interest in drawing or painting, will be interested in joining the club. Members of the club are open to suggestions and interests of the students, who decide what style or period of art they want to learn about.

The Art Club so far has explored Pop Art and made an Andy Warhol inspired piece that is displayed in the language hall for the SMHS community to see.

Keep an eye out for future Art Club installations around campus as the school year progresses. If you are the least bit interested in art, I encourage you come to a meeting on Tuesday in Ms. Yapp’s room, C107, and be a part of this creative group.
