Red Lion’s National Art Honor Society (NAHS) has always been composed of a unique group of students.
“I really like seeing kids who would normally pass each other in the halls come here and make connections,” Ms. Kelly McBrien, NAHS advisor, said. “When you come into this room, you have a great mix of kids, from athletes to really booksmart kids, or maybe even kids that don’t like to participate in a lot of extracurriculars. They come in here and come together.”
It is this mix that allows for the group to do so many different events for their service hours. These events vary from face painting to planning for murals and decorating windows.
Over the next few months, NAHS has several service events planned.
- Oct. 22: Volunteers will paint faces at Winterstown United Methodist Church during the church’s annual seasonal event.
- Oct. 24-31: Students will bring out their aprons and oven mitts for the NAHS Halloween bake sale to raise money.
- Oct. 29: Student artists plan to face paint at the FFA’s Fall Alumni and Friends Festival. The festival will feature different vendors, food stands, crafts, and a petting zoo.
- Nov. 2: The group will go on their annual fall field trip. This year’s destinations are University of the Arts and The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia.
- November: The group hopes to have finalized plans for at least three murals; two at Windsor Manor and one in the agricultural room at the high school.
- December: Students will participate in their annual window painting at the community center for the center’s Breakfast with Santa.
- February: The group will induct their new members on Super Bowl Sunday. Later that month, they will also start set painting for this year’s musical.
