During class, four lessons are taught and concept problems are done together.

Writing papers is an inevitable part of academia, and mastery of the form is critical for success regardless of intended field of study. It is not sufficient to be able to write a thesis statement and have strong topic sentences. Many students cringe when they hear the words “research paper,” but this need not be so!
This course is a gentle, yet imaginative introduction to the skills needed by all creative writers. Innovative exercises will be used to strengthen vocabulary and sentence patterns. Quality literature is used as the foundation to instruct the vital skills of point of view, characterization, and plotting. Writers will also explore quality character creation and learn how to put the pieces together to craft the stories they have been waiting to tell. While a perfect fit for a budding author, this is also a great course for a reluctant writer as there are many guided exercises that help bring writing to life through every student. Gaining confidence and skills in fiction will translate to increased success in academic writing assignments. Students are required to have a microphone.

After this, the class is hands-on as we learn the basic elements of art: space, line, shape, texture, value, etc, using color and learning more complex techniques. We will have lessons in things like pencil, art pens, watercolor, collage, sculpture, metal embossing, plaster and many other surprises. Students will learn how to see, and how to draw what they see. They will draw from real objects, copy great works, and use their imaginations. There will be many surprises and games thrown in to keep them guessing and excited.
Class begins with a study of art history. Study will be similar to that as stated in Art 6, but much more in-depth. We will progress through time periods covering Christian, Byzantine, Pre-Renaissance, Renaissance, Reformation, Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, etc. up to modern times. We will continually discuss how to distinguish worthy art from bad art – not just fine arts, but books, movies, music, etc.
NOTE : There is a required student and parent orientation the week prior to class beginning. It is held at the same time and location that the class is scheduled. The orientation is to overview what is required for the year and to enable students to get their first assignment as well as meet their fellow lab students and set up their notebooks prior to class beginning. This critical meeting establishes the student’s school year and the parents’ role in it. Details are still being worked out, since this is a Monday class and we start a week earlier than the other classes. When finalized it will be posted on .
