Fort Hays State University Art and Design professor Linda Ganstrom presented to the Art Club during PRIDE Time on Feb. 4.

Ganstorm showed pictures of the new art building on campus as well as pictures from trips art students have taken.

“It’s really important to get involved with clubs,” Ganstrom said. “There are so many clubs you can be a part of, and that’s how you meet people and get to go on trips.”

The Art Clubs at FHSU include Ceramics Club, American Institute of Graphic Arts, American Society of Interior Design, Creative Arts, National Society of Leadership and Success, and Social Practice.

“Social Practice is where artist go out into the community and meet with other people,” Ganstorm said.

This club helps develop creativity within the community.

“I believe art is for everyone, and if everyone did something creative each day, they’d be much happier,” Ganstrom said. “We find time to spend on our phones each day, and that doesn’t make me much happier, but when I take time each day to go to the studio and create something, my mood improves.”

After clicking through her PowerPoint, Ganstrom handed out information about the Art Department and an invite to the FHSU Student Recognition Program.

The Student Recognition Program on Feb. 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom.

Those who attend will be connected with Admissions, Residential Life, Faculty, Greek life, Financial Aid, FSHU VIPs, Honors College and Learning Communities.

FHSU will give away a $500 tuition scholarship, $600 book scholarship or a laptop computer for the 2020-2021 school year to a high school senior or college transfer student in attendance.
