We also provide students with a variety of experiences to explore their artistic creativity! Students work on individual and collaborative projects in disciplines such as painting and drawing, cartoon art, ceramics, printmaking, and art-meets-science (STEAM) classes. Students will learn to feel comfortable expressing themselves artistically and within a group setting. Students will have an opportunity to participate in critiques, and learn how to present and discuss their work.
