Art on a Mission


National Art Honor Society is one of the biggest clubs on campus.

Ms. Ardner, the art director and club leader, said that the club is opened up to anyone willing to do art, but a 3.0 GPA and an A in an art class are required. The club meets after school on Tuesday every week.

“We do a lot in the community like the Relay For Life. Every year we go and support,” said Ms. Ardner. “The NAHS is something that they enjoy, and being in the club is a privilege.”

There are 40 members so far in the club. The club has no particular subject of art that they work on. The club president, Kayelee Shimkoski, makes sure everything goes the way it should. She talks to her officers ahead of time to plan trips like going to the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach or Picasso’s Paint-Your-Own Pottery in Lantana.

There are many talented artists within the club. They express their artistic abilities through artwork, such as crayon art using a canvas, crayons, a hair dryer, and hot glue.

“I’ve been in the club since I was a freshman, and it has been my number one priority,” said Shimkoski. “NAHS is a great club to be involved in because they do so much for the community.”
