Newman Smith High School’s Visual Art program provides students with an introduction to art making through a multimedia experience. Students will learn and apply the elements of art and principles of design to produce creative art projects that reflect their understanding of these concepts.
Art Honor Society
The National Art Honor Society programs inspire and recognize students with an outstanding ability and keen interest in the visual arts. National Art Honor Society is a high school honor society for visual arts students in grades 9-12. The National Art Education Association began the NAHS program to inspire and recognize students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art. The program supports members in their efforts to attain the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community.
Art Club participates in the same activities as the National Art Honor Society. The only difference is that Art Club members are not registered with the National Art Education Association, the parent organization of NAHS, as they don't yet meet the national standards set forth by the NAEA.
