Getting Involved in Art at Marywood

This week I would like to highlight some of Marywood’s many art clubs and organizations available to students. These clubs can be fun and beneficial to art students and non-art students alike, and if you feel drawn toward a certain club, reach out and get involved! Marywood has so many groups to offer, each with its own community to help you grow as an artist, have fun, or get introduced to art-making.
