The LCHS National Art Honor Society is designed specifically for high school student’s grades 9-12 who have taken and completed two high school level art classes, maintains a 3.0 or higher GPA and is nominated by an art teacher that is a member of the NAEA.
Purpose : The LCHS NAHS chapter strives to inspire and recognize students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art with a strong emphasis on utilizing our artistic talents to bring art education to the attention of the school and community through community service.
The LCHS NAHS meets every first and third Tuesday at 3:10pm in Mr. Stouffer's art room. We work very closely with the Lee County Arts Council and the Sanford Brush & Palette Club to provide opportunities for our members to gain knowledge and experience in helping them develop into a seasoned artist. We are involved in numerous community service opportunities throughout the year including the collection and hanging of all of the K-12 artwork at the Lee Regional Fair, we facilitate two “Arts Days” at Floyd Knight School, we assist the Sanford Brush & Palette with their Fall Art Show, collaborate with the Lee County Arts Council in providing 100 ceramic bowls for their Shared Abundance dinner in November and 100 Christmas ornaments to hand out to children at the Sanford Tree Lighting Ceremony in December. Members participated in the 2015 Sounds on Steele Music Festival selling their artwork and hope to have a both at the 2016 Sanford Arts & Vine Festival.
We will be selling 2016 calendars in December that feature artwork from all of members as our only fundraiser this year.
We will have our induction ceremony in February and participate in the state wide NCHAS Retreat in April at East Carolina University.
