Members of the Yarn Barn recently completed their first project of crocheting a wash cloth. The Yarn Barn is a newly-formed service club whose mission is to teach students the art of crochet so they can create projects that can be used to send to deployed military personnel and to give to senior living centers. Members have learned to single crochet in the past month, and they presented their creations at a club meeting where they wrapped the wash cloths to be sent in care packages for soldiers in February.
Congratulations to the 40 new members of the National Art Honor Society! Membership in this chapter is based upon art scholarship, service, and character and consists of high school art students in grades 10 through 12. The students must have maintained an average of 90 or above in their art classes and are looked upon as role models for other students at Piedmont because they invest many community service hours outside of the school day. The mission of the NAHS is to educate the school and community about the arts, and to make the world a better place by using their talents and sharing with others. We are so proud to have so many talented and passionate kids in the arts!
