The Art Club met after school today to put the finishing touches on some hemp and bead bracelets that they are creating for this year’s Coffee House. All proceeds from the Coffee House to go Max’s Fund, a charity which raises money for children with neuroblastoma, a condition from which would-be senior Max Levine died.

The Club uses different colors of hemp for variety. Some bracelets are even bi-colored. They use ceramic beads created and painted by art students in addition to glass and plastic beads. The cost of the bracelets is to be determined, but donations will also be accepted for the charity.

While braiding the hemp, club members discussed project ideas for the spring. The majority of members agreed that they would like to do more outside activities, such as mosaics and using pottery wheels. Members are also interested in tie-dying once again.

The Art Club meets every other Wednesday. Contact Michelle Griffin (’09) or advisor Mrs. Morgan for meeting details.
