Over the past few years, Westminster’s art program has been growing; and this semester it is growing even further as the school has started an art club. The club meets on a weekly basis with Mrs. Price presiding. During the meetings members create art, which is based on a charge given by local artists. This charge serves as inspiration for the club members.
The first local artist is Gina Hurry, founder and co-director of InSpero. InSpero is an organization that supports the art community in Birmingham. The intent of having a local artist come to the meetings is so they will be able to show their artwork and share about the ways they are able to glorify God through art. Mrs. Hurry’s charge for the first project is “Dreams of Heaven.”
The club is open to anyone who is interested in art. Supplies will be provided to members for a small fee. This club provides students with the opportunity to grow in their creativity and artistic skill while glorifying God with their gifts. The ultimate goal of the art club is to enable the already talented artists in our school to grow further in their abilities and to allow them to grow in their knowledge of God, the great Creator, and how to glorify Him through their artwork.
