Art ClubArt club allows the students of Harvey Mudd to express their artistic sides in a low-pressure environment. Not only is art an excellent way to relax and decompress, but it also incorporates aspects of design and creativity that can be applied to other areas of academics. For many students who did art in high school, keeping up with their hobby can become extremely difficult when swamped with work, especially if they don’t know of anyone else who likes art as well. An art club would help artistic students meet each other and even set up times to paint/draw together. It would also provide the funding for good quality art supplies that they may not be able to purchase themselves. Also, in general, there are very few artistic activities at Mudd, and courses at the other colleges are difficult to get into and are too time consuming for the average Mudder. The Art Club would solve these problems, simultaneously encouraging wellness and staying true to Harvey Mudd’s roots as a liberal arts
