You don’t have to be an art major to enjoy the relaxation you get from creating something. The WCUPA Art Club understands this completely, and the executives are looking for students who want to do just that—relax and create.

Co-President Amanda Schulkowski, a freshman and criminal justice major here at WCU, said this new, up-and-coming club provides a “very relaxed and encouraging environment where anyone with a passion for art can join in. We welcome everyone of all skill level; you definitely don’t have to be an art major or minor!”

Each meeting consists of a craft or activity that keeps things fun and interesting, like making heart-shaped cards during the week of Valentine’s Day, and tie-dyeing t-shirts when it gets warmer. The members of the executive board do, however, take suggestions from members and do their best to provide the necessary tools and supplies.

This club doesn’t just stay in your typical art room, though. Schulkowski plans to go on field trips to local museums (such the Philadelphia Museum of Art), local shops (in our very own artsy West Chester town we love so much) and other places of interest, as well as occasionally incorporate service projects related to art into the activities as well.

“We hope that members will take something out of the club and learn a new skill,” Schulkowski says. “We want to incorporate lessons and tutorials from local artists and members within the club who feel they can share these skills.”

The club’s next meeting will be on Thursday, February 26th at 6:00 pm in E.O. Bull Center for the Arts, Room 132. You can like their Facebook page WCUPA Art Club and follow them on Instagram @wcuartclub. For more information, contact Amanda Schulkowski at:
