LCCC art club calls for new members

“Let’s be creative, inclusive, and communal” is the motto for the Art Club at Lehigh Carbon Community College, which is currently seeking new members.

Jeremy Siedt, the new Faculty Advisor for the Art Club said, “My vision for the Art Club, and the Art program in general, is to serve as a creative catalyst that continually evolves and expresses the importance of Art in the modern world while establishing a platform for growth and opportunity for everyone involved.”

The Art Club works in many mediums including, but not limited to, traditional, 3D, and 2D.

In past years, the Art Club has made murals on both the Tamaqua campus and the Schnecksville campus. They have also made a movable mural for the Veteran’s club. The club is currently working on murals for the radio station and a room in the Academic Resource Center at the Schnecksville campus. They are also working on a logo for wheelchair basketball. Members of the Art Club will participate in field trips to Philadelphia and New York City as well as public art festivals like May Fair.

According to Heather Kuntz, a member of the Art Club, there are many benefits of being in the club.

“Anything done can be put in a portfolio,” Kunts said. She added that there are a wide range of skills like painting and drawing, graphic design, and everything in between. “You can find a sense of community and friendship in the club. We’re very communal and creative."

“The Art Club isn’t just for art majors but for everyone that would like to get involved in meaningful projects and stretch their creative legs,” Siedt said.

The Art Club meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in joining, you can email ArtClubLCCC.x3@gmail.com.
