Art Club held a meeting on Nov. 20 during seminar featuring a presentation from Fort Hays State University’s (FHSU) ceramics professor Linda Ganstrom.

“It is important for students to be exposed to the different opportunities with art, whether it is post-secondary education or careers,” art instructor Jennifer Younger said.

Ganstrom started the presentation by offering “stress balls” and colored pencils to members of the Art Club.

Ganstrom’s presentation continued by talking about scholarships, faculty, clubs and technology that FHSU offers to incoming students.

“I thought it was great to see what the FHSU Art & Design program has to offer,” Younger said. “I already know, but I am happy for our HHS students to hear about it. Seniors also had the opportunity to sign up for a portfolio review which opens the doors for scholarships. It’s a great starting place for students who want to go into the art program at FHSU to begin making connections now.”

Traditional art, graphic design, interior design, art education and student diversity were major topics Ganstrom presented about.

“A synergy takes place at Fort Hays unlike any other place,” Ganstrom said.

Ganstrom also included information about FHSU’s “world class” technology in the Department of Art and Design.

“It gave me inspiration and hope for my future,” sophomore Antoni Leiker said.

In addition to the presentation, the Art Club announced student sign-up to perform live music at the Winter Art Walk on Dec. 7 has opened.

To sign up to perform, students can email Younger before the Art Walk.

“(There are) no requirements, just a desire to perform in front of an audience from 6-7 at Breathe Coffeehouse,” Younger said.
