Art Guild

The Art Guild provides students with the opportunity to work creatively in the field of art. The guild provides individual instruction to its members in a variety of media and works as a group on various school-wide projects. Further, the guild assists the Art Program in a service capacity. The Art Guild provides posters for school events, submits cover designs for the school concerts and various publications, and creates the stage decorations for the music concerts. The Latin School Art Guild is similar in scope but geared exclusively for members of the 6th to 8th Grades.

In addition, the Art Department sponsors a separate group called Animè. Animè explores one of the most popular forms of contemporary international art today: the stylized drawings of Japanese pop culture. Students from Freshman through Senior years are invited to draw and share their individual expertise with fellow members in the art of animè and manga. Lessons are given in adapting their own renderings into this particular Asian style. At several points in the year, the best pieces are given a display in the school. In addition, various films are shown.
