Western Oaks Elementary Art Club is comprised of up to 20 Fifth Graders who have a strong interest in exploring a variety of visual arts topics in greater depth than the regular class time allows. We meet weekly on Wednesdays after school from 3:30 until 5:00pm. Art Club members may perform demonstrations for the Putnam City Schools district-wide Arts Festival. Art Club members may also have the opportunity to go on a special field trip to see an exhibit of professional artwork. Some artwork produced through Art Club activities may be sold in order to raise funds to support WOE Art Department activities.

Growing and eating healthy foods, are the main focuses of Garden Club. We start with seeds, which we sprout and then plant in a hydroponic growing system called a Tower Garden. While the plants are growing we learn about pollination, different types of plants and why they can or cannot be grown in the Tower Garden. When the plants are fully-grown the students in the club are able to try and take home the produce they have worked to grow. Each year we learn more and grow more foods. The students have grown peas, dill, basil, green beans, broccoli, and bell peppers.
