Southfield SchoolExtracurricular Activities
Many of our students find and explore their interests through our after school clubs.
There are many after school activities available for Southfield students to participate in beyond athletics and we continue to add and enhance our program offerings as we identify interest from our students.
Whether exploring an early interest in civic leadership or an interest in math or music, our students enjoy many opportunities to explore their passions.
Advanced Visual Arts
Advanced Visual Arts is offered to 7th-8th Grade serious art students who are dedicated to building skills to become better artists. Students do not have to be “good artists” in order to join, they just need to have the desire to improve and willingness to practice. Students will apply what they have learned about the elements of art and principles of design. Traditional art genres (landscape, still life, additive sculpture, portraiture, and more) will be introduced and technical applications in various media will be taught.
