Artist of the Month

Meet Our Artist of the Month
Angelina is in 5th grade. She is wonderful artist who is a great leader in class. She always puts forth her best effort. Angelina learned about color psychology and the meanings associated with certain colors. They were asked to think of a person they were thankful for and create an abstract painting using the colors that made them think of that person. Angelina chose her dad because he is "loyal, wise, loving, happy, joyful, and my daddy."

What is Artist of the Month?
Ready, set, CRAFT! Each month Boys & Girls Club members are asked to submit a photograph of their best arts and crafts work to our Artist of the Month Contest. Each month will have a new theme to inspire youth and artwork should connect to the monthly specified theme. Winning artwork will be posted here on and the artist will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond.
