Fine Arts

Extra-curricular programs are an integral part of student life at Hamburg School. Our primary goal is to enhance the academic, social and emotional development of our student body through offering a variety of athletic, artistic, literary, and musical activities. After school activities promote time management skills; allows for exploration of diverse interests; builds self esteem, teamwork abilities, and goal setting. The Hamburg School encourages our students to become involved.

The Art Club meets twice per month, from approximately mid-October through mid-May.  Meeting dates are posted on my school web page.  During Art Club meetings students explore a variety of materials and techniques, and are encouraged to think creatively.  The Art Club has the privilege of assisting in the design and creation of the backgrounds/props/displays for our annual school musical, as well as for other school events.
