The National Art Honor Society was established in 1978 in the United States by the National Art Education Association for high school students grades 10-12 for "the purpose of inspiring and recognizing those students who have shown an outstanding ability in art (The National Art Honor Society website)." The club is open to all students who have had at least one semester of art and have maintained at least a B in that course.
The purpose of the chapter shall be to:
A. Ensure and recognize those students who have shown outstanding ability in art.
B. foster excellence and dedicated spirit to the pursuit of art.
C. further creative abilities and talents of the Society's members, as well as the school's entire student art enrollment.
D. aid members in working toward the attainment of their highest potential in an art area.
E. bring art to the attention of the school and community.
F. increase an awareness of art in relation to other areas of the school curriculum.
G. further aesthetic awareness in all aspects of the school's total program.

In celebration of Clearwater Central Catholic High School's 50th Anniversary, the Art Honor Society presented the following pictures to the school as a gift. Students incorporated pictures from old yearbooks with new pictures taken around campus to mark the change the campus has taken since 1962.
On April 13 & 14 members of the CCC National Art Honor Society (AHS) painted a colorful mural of the United States and a hopscotch court on the playground of Morning Star Catholic School in Pinellas Park, a pre-K through 8th grade school for students with special needs. AHS students began the project last fall by creating stencils and plotting out the site. The project was funded with the help of CCC students, faculty and staff through this year's Lenten Project. In addition to the painting project, students also donated a large parachute and a tetherball.
