The Art Club is a service organization in which students participate in art-related service activities, i.e. creating holiday cards for nursing home residents, producing art work for teachers' bulletin boards, designing or creating signs for school activities. Meetings are held once a month, and any 6th, 7th, or 8th grade student currently enrolled in an art course may become a member. Ridgewood's art club is a member of the Youth Arts Council of America (YACA), a state art club where students who earn the highest number of service points are invited to attend a state convention sponsored by YACA and held in the spring. The Ridgewood art club has won many awards each year at the YACA state convention, including performance banner, table decoration, and various individual student awards.
