Current Clubs

Alternative Art Club

Day: Wednesdays

Time: 9-10pm

Location: Art Studio

Have you ever painted with ketchup, or built a forest in a cardboard box? To us, art is about exploration and taking what you think you know about art and turning it on its head. Alternative Art Club gives you a chance to use materials in ways you wouldn’t typically think of. We’ll dedicate each month to a specific topic, or material for members to explore. Each meeting will be spent in the studio doing hands-on crafting and discovery. We plan on delving into materials such as yarn, food, pieces of nature found around campus, and various recycled products. However, member input will play a large role in the projects we pursue and the masterpieces we create! 

Leaders: Emily Miu and Liz Grabis

 

Art Movements and Mediums

Day: Mondays

Time: 8-9pm

Location: Art Studio

This club will explore different and unconventional artists and their work, through group discussion and experimentation. We will focus on visual artists who create in ways that differ from typical art standards, including subject matter, mediums, and manifestations. As a club, we will visit museums and galleries around Ann Arbor, to see our potential mediums up close. We will look at how artists convey and showcase their work to further its meaning, such as the difference between Andy Warhol displaying his art in a museum, while Banksy chooses the street. We will cover these, as well as many more artists week by week. With each artist, club members will complete projects using the artists’ styles to inspire their own art. Projects will include photographic transformations in the style of Cindy Sherman, book covers inspired by Chip Kidd, and personal logo designs influenced by Milton Glaser. No art experience is necessary for this club, just an open mind and interest in learning about contemporary artists while being creative.  

Leaders: Anna Minnebo and Christina Khouri

 

Arts and Literary Journal

Day: Tuesdays

Time: 7-8pm

Location: Classroom 2012

The purpose of this club is to receive and review submissions from first and second-year LHSP students to be compiled into the annual LHSP Arts & Literary Journal. Our vision is to celebrate and exemplify the unique voices of our LHSP students through their creative expression, which include but are not limited to drawings, painting, sculptures, photographs and various types of written prose. Our goal is to create a journal that captures the “voice” so to speak of each year of students and create a journal to celebrate everything that makes LSHP great. In addition, we hope to give our club members insight into the world of publishing and the process of creating a literary journal from scratch.

Leaders: Megan Knittel and Asritha Vinnakota

 

Creative Writing Club

Day: Thursdays

Time: 8-9pm

Location: Classroom 2012

Whether you're 500 pages into your memoir or have pages of secret fan fiction hidden under your bed, Creative Writing club is the place for you!  We aim to create a welcome and supportive environment that is open for all writers to explore different aspects of the craft, and continue pursuing something they're passionate about in a world of essays and deadlines. Creative Writing club will incorporate both aspects of individual learning as well as group work, using different exercises and prompts to engage your mind while playing around with different ideas. Activities will range from free write nights or peer critiquing workshops to open mic nights at literati or walks through the graveyard. Our goal is to help you develop as writers by focusing on how you can approach experiences by looking at them through different lenses, and finding inspiration in the world around you.

Leaders: Johnny Lorenzana and Rhea Cheeti

 

Digital Media

Day: Mondays

Time: 8-9pm

Location: Room 2012

Digital Media Club is a group centered around our technological state of the 21st century,
where everything we do is uploaded, edited, and shared. Digital Media Club will be used as a tool to connect all the clubs/hubs of activity within LHSP, to generate genuine and thorough content. The content will range from professional (upholding the standards of LHSP and the University of Michigan) to personal (the everyday life of a student; our struggles, opinions, and advice). No social media or digital design experience is necessary.

Leaders: Katherine Qiao, Chang Yang and Fizz Harfield

 

Fashion Club

Day: Tuesdays

Time: 7:30-8:30pm

Location: Classroom 2060

The Fashion Club will bring a fashionable edge to Alice Lloyd by participating in fashion forward activities expanding creativity. The purpose of fashion club is to join those interested in styling, designing, sewing, and more in one group where they work collaboratively and cohesively to create new and inspired works of art for the community to see. It will allow students to plan and/or create their own fashion-related product, whether it be a magazine, vlog, fashion show, event, garment etc. and to provide club members with a visual outlet.

Leaders: Jenise Williams and Kaitlyn Moore

 

Film Club

Day: Thursdays

Time: 7-8pm

Location: Room 2012

We tend to think that we seek out films in theaters, but it surrounds us in our everyday lives. We see it in the commercials on our televisions, the YouTube videos that are trending, and even the videos we take on Snapchat. Though we are bombarded with this media, many of us are still hesitant to understand it and even more hesitant to become filmmakers ourselves.

This is not a classroom. This club is not designed to find some “answer” as to what film is. Instead, the focus is to overcome the fear of picking up a camera, and then find a way to express ourselves through film. The club will consist of both individual and group projects as well as workshops to help learn how to use a camera and how to edit our content.

And - you don’t need experience. You don’t even need to have a particular desire to be the cameraman/camerawoman. Film is a collaborative effort- writers, actors, artists, stylists, etc. are needed just as much as cinematographers. All you need is an interest to express yourself.

Leader: Matthew Holland

 

Music Club

Day: Wednesdays

Time: 8-9pm

Location: Basement/Den; Every 4th week in the Living Room

Music Club is run with the purpose of fostering participants' musical interests, sharing a passion for music, and encouraging students to collaborate to broaden their musical experiments and interests. We operate in four week cycles: pick musical groups, practice, record, jam out. These musical groups will switch every cycle, and you’ll work on a specific piece that you’ll record on the third week of each cycle. We’ll also be attending open mic nights, busking, attending performances, and compiling our recorded pieces.

Leaders: Ellen Paquet, Luke Cheng, Conrad Pan and Ketan Brodeur

 

Poetry Club

Day: Tuesdays

Time: 8-9pm

Location: Classroom 2012

Poetry Club will focus on exploring the different forms of poetry. This includes both spoken poetry and written poetry. We will go over all the basics of the different types of poetry such as haikus, sonnets, and poetry art. We are aiming that every poem written and performed in this club will be finalized into a memoir book that our members can take with them. As a club, we will be visiting places like Silvio’s Pizza to occasionally participate in their weekly poetry slams. Some days we will be in the classroom brainstorming ideas about what to write about and other days we will go over famous poets or watch poetry slams. In short, this is a club where no experience is necessary; all you need is patience, an open mind, and the enthusiasm to be here!

Leader: Krysten Dorfman and Christina Tang
