A sense of creativity and im­
agination could have described
the atmosphere that took place
in the Art Center last week as
art instructor Rick True’s
Basic Design class introduced
their quarterly Design Art
Show. The show, however,
will carry over until this Fri­
day, November 22, so there’s
still time to catch it.
The Art show, sponsored by
the Creative Art Society and
Dan Schaefer, president of the
Creative Art Society, includes
work done by the students in
the Basic Design class which
displays skills learned thus far.
Much of the work displayed
involves the use of creating a
module effect in order to cause
a bigger illusion to the
viewer.The student combines
this effect by using art designs

“Design has something to
do in every piece of art,” ex­
plained Schaefer. “Design is
mainly putting things on paper
to create an emotional effect.”
Basic Design Class involves
negative and positive spaces,
and texture.
“They (the students) learn
to combine these things for
tools in later art,” commented
Schaefer also expressed the

photography, commercial art,
graphic art, all types of fine
art, as well as interior design.
“The class is great, and the
instructor leaves the class fair­

work are entered in the show
include Mary Saalfeld,
Shallow Herbst, Shirley Frenz,

“If you’re interested in the
visual arts and in becoming a
more creative person, then this
organization is for you,”, says
Creative Arts Society Presi­
dent Dan Schaefer.
The Creative Arts Society,
an organization began last
year, has returned for the
1985-86 year.
Shaefer explains that the
society is an organization of
artists and art enthusiasts who
are trying to generate public
interest in art and to give them
a chance to experience the
many different visual art
“We support all forms of
photography, sculpture, draw­
ing, graphic arts, and so on/’
says Schaefer. “We don’t have
any photographers right now,
but we will be encouraging
them to join.”
Past accomplishments of
the society include the “Boats
and Canoes” exhibit earlier
this year, the Design show,
currently running, and the
creativity workshop last year.
The workshop was taught by
John Orelle, and was designed
to “enlighten the artist, to
motivate and harness new
facets of his creativity.” Ac­
cording to Schaefer, the
workshop was such a success
and they plan to hold another
this year.
The creative arts society is
an independent campus
organization. Schaefer says,
“We’re not a club really.
We’re a society of artists en­
couraging each other in
creative endeavors. I think
that we could co-exist with the
college just fine as a campus
club, and we are exploring that
being a member. “(Those who
join) get support and have
their works displayed. We get
shows organized, we get our
members’ work shown, and
we organize various work

of the society as becoming
