Does being involved in art count as an extracurricular activity?

Hey guys! I'm really into drawing and painting, and I'm in my school's art club. Do you think this could be considered an extracurricular activity? If so, can I include it on my college application?

Absolutely! Drawing, painting, and being a member of your school's art club are all great examples of extracurricular activities. Colleges like to see applicants who are well-rounded and can demonstrate a variety of skills and interests. Involvement in the arts not only showcases your talents but also your dedication to pursuing your interests.

When filling out your college application, make sure to list your art club involvement and any other art-related activities you've participated in. You can also consider including a portfolio of your artwork if the college allows it or if you're applying to a program that requires one. This is a great way to further showcase your passion and talent in the arts.
