They give tours of the department, answer questions and help in recruiting new students. They may participate in the annual Majors Fair and other on-campus activities.

Crimson Clay

Crimson Clay brings together students who share a common enthusiasm for working with clay. Whether focused on functional or sculpture clay art, each member works toward a greater understanding of material and process. Every semester, members seek to benefit the larger group and broader community by building relationships with local partners. This is accomplished, in part, through the exhibition of student artwork as well as fund-raising events. As a result, students receive funding assistance from the club to attend conferences or ceramic-based research activities throughout the United States.

General Art Club

The General Art Club is a student-run arts club at the University of Alabama. Expressing ourselves through art, both professionally and for fun, is the basis of our organization. We believe that everyone should have access to artistic communities and experiences, regardless of skill level or college major. Our organization is home to aspiring professional art majors, engineering majors with artistic hobbies and those simply wanting to learn the basics and have fun. We aim for one large project each semester, which may include public events, artist workshops and visitors or exhibitions. Additionally, we have small events and activities to practice new techniques. Our main priority is to connect students to each other and the community through art.

Society of Art History Students – The Guild

“We are a small group of emerging art historians with a wide range of skills and experience. We love what we do, and we do it with passion.” The Society of Art History Students, or The Guild, is a campus organization where students can gather to discuss topics of art history. To join, one does not have to be an art history major or minor but should have a keen interest in the discipline. Activities during meetings include discussions of art, faculty spotlights, and items of interest, such as using an Oculus program to view Gothic cathedrals, or watching films or documentaries related to art history. An interest in a specific period, style, or artist is not required. This organization is intended to have an amalgamation of interests coming from each member. With this, fruitful and robust discussions can be held, where students learn from each other. Resources for both undergraduates and graduates are available, such as opportunities for paper submissions and useful sources regarding graduate school applications. For more information, contact them or follow them on Instagram.
