National Art Honor Society visits the John Michael Kohler Arts Center

The Sheboygan North High National Art Honor Society was created to offer our students with unique opportunities to engage in the local arts community. As part of a growing partnership with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, North NAHS students  and the South High Art Club were introduced to Lenny who works in the Collections Department. He shared his experience working in the Collections Department and the many tasks that his job entails. After the presentation, they had a sneak peek to where the ‘magic’ happens. The evening concluded with a tour of the recent exhibitions led by Xoe, Education Coordinator. 

We will be visiting again in early February to hear curators talk about their role at JMKAC.

SPANISH 5: THE STUDY OF SPANISH ARTISTS

After studying Spanish art, Spanish 5 students will replicate a masterpiece of the artist of their choice. Using the Spanish language, students will present their work to the class, telling us why they chose that particular artist and piece. They will teach us background information about the artist as well as analyze the masterpiece. The genres students chose included etching, painting, murals, architecture and photography.

These works are on view at the NHS ARTifacts Gallery, 2nd floor. 

Sheboygan North High Art Department starts a National Art Honor Society chapter

The Sheboygan North High Art Department is pleased to announce that it has officially became a National Art Honor Society (NAHS) chapter. This is the first chapter of its kind in our North High history dedicated to the visual arts. 

Visual arts education is essential to 21st-century learning. As a new NAHS chapter we will be utilizing the NAEA to stay ahead of developments in the field of arts education by being introduced to a broad perspective of important research, issues, and policy trends that are important. As a NAHS chapter we are connected to thousands of chapters from around the globe who are passionate about the integral role of the visual arts in ensuring all students to receive a high-quality, effective, and well-rounded education. 

We believe that the National Art Honor Society will contribute to reaching our building goals. In addition, introducing students to a diverse art offering beyond the walls of North High will expand their minds, to participate in new art experiences, and to be provided with leadership opportunities, which will contribute to their personal and academic growth. Student success is very important to us and our professional goal is to assist them in their journeys.
