What is NAHS? The National Art Honor Society (NAHS) is designed specifically for high school students.

NAHS CRAFT SALES: Students from the National Art Honor Society have been busy making handcrafted ceramic jewelry and holiday ornaments this fall semester. On Saturday 12/2 these students showcased their crafts at Washingtonville's "Christmas in the Village" holiday vendor sale. This first sale was a success as they sold close to half their inventory. It was the first of many opportunities for these talented art students to sell their work. High School staff, faculty and students were able to purchase these items at the High School's Holiday Craft Sale during all lunches the week of December 18th. N.A.H.S. students plan to make more ceramic jewelry to sell at our annual Empty Bowls WHS fundraiser, scheduled for Saturday, April 28, 2018. The money raised from these sales will go towards art-related field trips and experiences for all National Art Honor Society Students.

Fifty percent of the funds raised will help support educational experiences for our NAHS students. The other 50% will be donated to Empty Bowls WHS (to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley and the Country Kids Food Pantry). Special thanks to all our volunteers and refreshment donors.
