Belhaven Club Descriptions

Art Club
We will be creating a variety of different arts and crafts this year.We have ordered a variety of different materials, so that you will get to experience some new and exciting art that you probably would not get to in your regular art class.  We will be meeting on Thursdays each the week. 
Art club is what you make of it.  Every meeting I will have a planned medium to work in or you could choose to work on refining your skills (in the medium of your choice).  It is your decision what you create that Thursday within the limitations of our materials.  In other words, the sky is the limit!
Aviation Club
The members of the Aviation Club will explore flight and build models of aircraft and test them. They will also have opportunities to fly the flight simulator and create aircraft of their own.  The cost of the club is $5 and will go towards supplies for the members.

Belhaven Avenue Animal Dudes

B.A.A.D. is an informal club that meets Monday mornings around 8 am to talk about animals and help animals when we can. We discuss any creature that our members wish to discuss. We have created decorated horseshoes to sell for horse rescue donations.   We have painted wooden ornaments for the local SPCA to use at the holidays for animal donations. We do projects that interest our members and we learn more about other animals.

The moderators and high school tutors will provide encouragement and help for those students who may need the extra help. Mainland Regional High School students may work one to one with students who need additional support in their studies. Teachers or Parents may assign a student to Homework Club so that the student can organize their time and learn strategies to complete their assignments.

The atmosphere is designed to encourage good study habits and organization for our students. Students who cannot maintain appropriate behaviors for Homework Club will be excused from participation.

The students will play on teams each week and enjoy physical activity in a safe environment.

Knitting Club
Whether you are an advanced knitter or just want to learn, knitting club is simply an opportunity for us to get together and create fiber arts. It’s all about having fun!
Beginners will start with a simple project and pace themselves according to their own comfort level. As we are all most likely on different ability levels, we will help one another.
We do have some supplies here to share, but probably not enough for everyone. Please check with me.

Beginners will need the following materials: 
1 ball of ‘bulky’ yarn in your favorite color
1 set of knitting needles, size 13
Advanced knitters just come with your projects and knit away!

We will meet Wednesday afternoons in the library from 3:00 until 3:45. If there is an occasion that we need to cancel, I will let you know as far in advance as possible and do my best to reschedule.
