Do you love art and can’t get enough of it? Do you want to take art class but can’t fit it into your schedule or it is not offered yet? Do you like to hang around the art people and do things with them? If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes,” you may be interested in joining the art club. It is open to any students enrolled in the Ensign Peak Academy Middle School or High School program.
The club activities will be student-driven with assistance and mentorship from the advisor. Suggested activities could include the following: group art projects; in-depth learning and work on individual art projects, virtual streaming (connected with phone, tablet or computer) field trips to art galleries, museums and studios, guest artist speakers, art discussions, community art service projects, and sponsoring an online art show periodically.

Club Create Advisor: Jennifer Wheeler
Jennifer Wheeler is an avid book reader and lover of all things literature, writing, and music. As an English Education Major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Jen added a love of teaching to her love of literature. After receiving a B.S. in English Education from IUP, Jen taught for several years in the Fairfax County Public School System where she instructed 10th and 11th grade students in English and Language Arts. During that time, she also served as a curriculum developer and testing coordinator for her team. Jen and her husband John married in 2006 and were blessed a year later with a beautiful daughter. They have been homeschooling their four children since their oldest, Katie, entered Kindergarten in 2011. Jen is very interested in various homeschooling philosophies and methods and was blessed to serve as the president of the East Coast Conference Team of Latter-day Saint Home Educators for 3 years. She is a book and curriculum junkie, and in her “spare time,” she loves to read, knit, spin, make music, and go on adventures. She is affectionately named “The Energizer Bunny” by those who are closest to her because she never stops going, and truly finds joy in learning and adventuring wherever the Lord leads her.
