All Hillsboro Elementary School students participate in art classes during school. In addition, we offer an extracurricular program for second graders called Art Club for students who enjoy creating art and who want to spend more time learning about art. They are led by teacher Daisy Abreu and meet on Thursdays after school from 3:25 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Art Club offers students an opportunity to create art works with new mediums not used in the regular art classes. They also craft large paintings and study about famous artists.
The group is open to second graders, with an opportunity to join in the fall and again in the spring. Tryout forms are sent home in September and December. Students draw a picture according to instructions and write three reasons why they want to join. A committee of four teachers evaluates the submissions, and approximately 20 students are invited to participate for the semester.
