Art in Life

Dots, maroon, stripes and the Rouse sign. These are the free face painting options Art Club and National Art Honor Society are offering at this Friday’s home football game.

Art Club and the National Art Honor Society are getting involved in school activities by participating in options like face painting. They will be stationed inside the front gate from about 6:30 until halftime for students who want to stop by and show extra spirit for the team.

“It’s a good way to connect Rouse, not just from the students to the players, but also from the families to the school,” senior Art Club member Elijah Mitchell said. “It allows people to have a greater sense of camaraderie.”

Another activity Art Club members recently completed was constructing an eagle for the Georgetown pep rally. They also created a mural in the softball field dugout and a mural in the cafeteria.

“We do a bunch of artsy projects, like the murals and face painting at different events, which shows our support for the organization,” senior Art Club Vice President Andie Urbina said. “We like to see what kind of art things we can do.”

The club is also looking for new members who share a common interest as them. They want students to know everyone is welcome to participate.

“Some students think you have to be in art to be in our club, but you don’t have to be in art class to get involved,” sponsor Lauren Schwartz said. “This way anyone interested in art can do fun activities that are art related.”
