For the past eight years, Norwich High School Art Teacher Wayne Franklin has been offering Art Club for students in the school who want to work on their own creative projects, and while they don’t get the same recognition as the high school athletes, Franklin feels their school spirit is represented in everything they create.
The advisor described the club as more of an art enrichment experience than his traditional classes are. “I don’t provide projects for the group. I encourage them to come and find something they like to do or want to try,” Franklin said. That something could be painting, sculpting, drawing or even coloring on coloring sheets. “That way the students take more of an ownership of it,” Franklin said.
