The National Art Honor Society meets every friday at 2:00 in the sculpture room on the 2nd floor of SHS. Art teacher Ms. D'Angelis serves as the club adviser, with several students serving as club officers. The National Art Honor Society, or NAHS as most members call it, has about 35 members from all four grades at the high school.

This past October, NAHS painted miniature Halloween-themed pumpkins. Members sold their creations on the day of Halloween window painting in hopes of bringing art to younger members of the Scarsdale community.

On the evening of December 7th, NAHS members gathered in the Little Theatre for the annual induction ceremony. In order to be officially inducted, each student must be enrolled in at least one high school art class and attain a certain grade. Inductees included Gabby Salvatore, Dana Wohlfarth, Madeline Ware, Paige Selber, Ally Yaseen, Lindsay LeBoyer, Becky Schwartz, Madeline Minke, Eliana Drescher, Felicia Xu, Sophia Noulas, Kara Schechtman, Maia Sacchi, and Rochelle Gage. The club officers spoke to parents about the purpose of NAHS, and a guest speaker from the Friends of Music and the Arts explained the importance of art in the community.
How else can artists help their community through public art projects?
