Welcome to the Alpena High School Art Department

Visual Art students are learning how to use stoneware clay to create various 3-dimensional art projects.

The Visual Art class is utilizing the elements of art and principles of design while creating uniquely designed art works.

I look forward to seeing each of you at the:

                    Welcome to the Alpena High  School Art Department, Art I and Art II.smiley

Alpena High School Art Department is currently using stoneware clay furnished by Osage Pottery Studio to learn how to create 3-dimensional pottery projects such as clay bowls, cups, pockets, bas relief tiles, and Greek Amphoras.

The Alpena High School Art Department enjoyed an enriching art field trip to Crystal Bridges American Art Museum on Thursday, September 7, 2017.  We enjoyed an educational guided tour and class viewing American glass artist Dale Chihuly in the Forest exhibited in Arkansas for the first time!  Students  also enjoyed a  deliciously nourishing lunch furnished by Crystal Bridges.  We also enjoyed a fun hike of the Crystal Bridges grounds as well as an eventful tour of the Crystal Bridges Art Museum!  Mr. Terrry Blackburn skillfully drove our bus, and Mrs. Sara Bray was our chaperone.  It was an awesome tour!




The Alpena Art department will plan, paint, and install new Robotics/Science, Golf, and Art Club posters for the Alpena School Community Mural.  The Art Club is now creating/practicing face painting for the Alpena Arts & Crafts Festival Fundraiser May 5, 2018 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., all proceeds will go to the Alpena School District Art Department and students!
