Wesleyan high school students take art to the next level by submitting “eye catching” pieces to art contests. Fine Arts are highly celebrated at Wesleyan, as all students are provided with a variety of visual art elective courses. According to the department, Wesleyan School’s goal for Fine Arts is to “maintain a structured system combined with a set curriculum to prepare the stage for creative talent to flourish. Each student is mentored and shown the importance of patience, dedication and a strong work ethic.”
Wesleyan introduces new clubs and committees every year to incorporate every talent and skill students possess into the lives of the Wesleyan community. Wesleyan’s newest addition to its offered list of clubs is the National Art Honors Society. Complied of the most talented artists and visionaries Wesleyan has to offer, the National Art Honors Society works hard to diversify Wesleyan’s scenery and give the campus a more creative edge. Interviewed to learn more about the depth of work and skill it takes to be one of these talented club members were President Haley Gilliam, Vice President Jimmy Cox and Secretary Maddie Davis.

On Aug. 21, all of Wesleyan School gathered in Henderson Stadium to watch the Great American Eclipse.
“The eclipse provide[d] us with a terrific opportunity to witness the beauty of God’s creation and the mystery of His handiwork,” said Headmaster Chris Cleveland.
Science department chair Anna Myrick said, “People were most fascinated by how such a tiny sliver of Sun could still create so much light for us. This is a reminder that the smallest acts of kindness and good deeds can spread the light of God’s Kingdom to so many.”
When asked what experiencing the eclipse would entail, Myrick said, “You will see the Moon cross in front of the Sun. The sky will dim by around 90% and drop about five degrees in temperature. There could be a cool breeze, an ‘eclipse wind.’ Shadows will be altered and the darkness will begin in the western sky. We could see Venus as a star (in the Western sky) and Jupiter (in the Eastern Sky). The darkest areas will be in the northern part of the sky where totality is occurring.” Keep Reading
