SkillsUSA, a club for Champions and Artists at Work
The SkillsUSA Club this year has changed its focus to be more of an art club. They plan to be based on primarily on art and graphic design as the center of their club.
“Most of the kids that join our club are art students anyways, so we decided this year that [art] was going to be our focus,” said SkillsUSA Advisor, Mrs. Montierth. “We’re trying to gear all of our activities, events, and service projects to a more art-sy field. One of our first field trips will be attending the Art Stroll in Ogden as a club.”
Skills has already planned to do a service project centered around their new concentration.
“We’ll be doing a mural for the Silver Pup Daycare as a service project soon, and really sticking to that art-related feel,” said Junior, Bailei Smith, a member of Skills.
Many members believe that this change of concentration within the club will help Skills to become well known throughout the community.
“I think with the change of the focus, that’ll will help our club get out there, more recognized,” Smith said.
