2020-2021 Meeting Schedule (subject to change):

Maker Monday's are mandatory, and are held on the first Monday of every month from 12:30-1:30pm.  Projects started on Maker Monday are to be completed on your own time through the rest of the month.  These projects will be featured in our end-of-year induction/art show.

Mural Monday's are voluntary, and are held on the last Monday of every month from 12:30 - 1:30pm.  Students who are comfortable coming in to school and would like to continue the mural in Mr. New's room are welcome to come work at that time.


Requirements for members: Juniors and Seniors must review application requirements and submit completed application and dues by Friday, September 25th, 2020

  • Returning members must re-apply and pay the membership dues (see more on dues at the bottom of this page).

  • Members are required to attend at least 6 of the 8 Maker Monday meetings and must complete 6 of the 8 activities planned. These activities range from creating small works of art at home in order to try a new medium or develop a new technique, to creating works of art for your community.  These works will be started during our hour long meetings, but are to be completed on your own time. Completed works of art are to be photographed and uploaded to the appropriate NAHS assignment on Google Classroom, and will be part of our induction exhibit in the spring.  Some of these works may be auctioned off for charity. We are expecting high quality work, which serve as evidence of artistic voice, time, effort as well as craftsmanship.

  • Members must attend Maker Monday meetings for the full hour in order to be inducted in the spring.

  • Only two excused absences are permitted per member. 

  • Excused absences include days where you were absent from school, or have a medical appointment during our meeting, for which a note is required.  Other commitments to sports, clubs, tutoring, jobs, etc. *do not* count as an excused absence.

  • Members must contribute to one large group project for the year.

  • Members must submit artwork to at least one show/competition outside of WHRHS (For example: Scholastic Art Competition, Celebrating Art, etc.)

  • Members must help plan and participate in the NAHS art show and induction in the spring.

    Membership Dues: 

    Upon notification of acceptance, a payment of $30 must be submitted by Friday, October 2nd.  This fee will be paid electronically (link & instructions to be provided to accepted members) and covers NAHS membership dues.  All members, even returning,  must pay the fee.  If you are unable to meet the requirements to achieve induction in the spring, your payment *will not* be returned to you.

Mission Statement
The Watchung Hills Chapter of the National Art Honor Society is to recognize those students who have shown outstanding ability in art. Students must have demonstrated excellence as well as a dedicated spirit to the pursuit of art. Students have demonstrated creative and critical thinking, by being inquisitive and investigative. It is not enough to have just excelled at art and completed course requirements; students should have demonstrated qualities that have taken them beyond the scope of their course curriculum.
