NAHS National Art Honor Society
Sponsor: Amanda Wall
The National Art Honor Society is an organization that recognizes students who have shown outstanding ability in the field of Art. Through school and community service projects, students are able to pursue creative endeavors that work toward reaching their highest potential in the field of Art. NAHS strives to bring attention to the arts in the school and community. NAHS is continually looking for dedicated artists and service projects to spread awareness of Art being a viable area within the school curriculum.
Each year, the NAHS looks for new service project opportunities for students to use their talents to better impact the community. For the past few years, Art students have partnered with the Youth Art for Healing organization or the Montgomery Blair Science Department.Youth Art for Healing
"Youth Art for Healing is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring works of Art created by youth into healthcare environments to provide a sense of comfort inspiration and healing for patients and their loved ones, and healthcare professionals." -youthartforhealing.org
This year, Montgomery Blair's NAHS is teaming up with Youth Art for Healing to create twenty-two paintings for Suburban Hospital. In previous years, Blair's NAHS chapter has donated paintings to Washington MedStar Hospital and to Georgetown Hospital.Art and Science
Since 2012, several students of the National Art Honor Society have worked on Science-themed murals that are located in the Science hallways at Blair. So far we have completed a STEM mural, Biology and Marine Biology, and a Chemistry mural. This year, students have completed the sketching process and began painting a Physics mural.
