Colony Club

offered their suggestions and chose the name “Colony Club”. The Colony Club meets at a variety of weekly scheduled times to work on their projects. Gaslight’s local artists volunteer to be on hand to mentor and guide the students through their projects with no cost to the members. Gaslight hosted a Christmas pizza party for the students on Monday, December 19th, there were 8 of the 13 members present and
all the board members. The Colony Club art students are currently working on
two projects for businesses in downtown Marshall. This program will help students gain experience in Community/School Service Projects. Learning how to paint with acrylics on canvas will be a first time experience for many of the students. Gaslight Art Colony is so pleased to be able to nurture their talent and provide a place where they can gather for refreshments and fellowship. We are pleased to be able to promote art through our students and appreciate their hard work and effort. We look forward to sharing the finished projects with our Marshall community. Membership to the club is open to any student interested in art.
