Class Descriptions

Mondays @ 2:15PM: Art with Michelle

This class will explore art with a focus on the creative reuse of materials from urban and natural environments. Art is a universal language that builds bridges of understanding and connects us to who we are while empowering a collective and innovative mind. Art making offers a way to channel the rampant emotional, physical, and spiritual disconnect in our modern society into innovative and original articulations.

Mondays @ 4:00PM: Movie Makers with Candice

This class will take students from script to final screening of an original short film. Students will participate as cast or crew for the production and will receive hands on training in each role with the help of industry professionals. 


Tuesdays at 2:15PM: Kung Fu with Gary

This class  is an introductory class in Chinese martial arts. Students will learn forms, punches, kicks, responsibility and self accountability.

Tuesdays at 4:00PM: Comics with Abby

In this class we will learn how to start writing, scripting and sketching out short comics! We will brainstorm ideas for each comic as a group then we will spend time in smaller groups working on completing each piece! This is a great place to start learning what you may or may not like about the process of making a comic!​​

Wednesdays at 2:15PM: Pottery with Jane

This class introduces students the tactile aspect of clay. They will also learn about the history of pottery and where clay comes from and how different regions have different clay. Our first project will be to make a simple monster. In the following classes, we will be making trivets, pendants, closed vessels and working up to a taller vessel, using a large variety of simple tools, stamps and texture rollers. Students can bring something in to create an impression on their pieces such as a shell, leaf or even a stone. Each child should have 4 or 5 completed pieces to take home. Throughout the weeks we will be talking about similarities and differences and the beauty of each...and of course clay.

Wednesdays at 4:00PM: Ballet II 

This class will build upon the skills learned Ballet I. This class is for students who have completed beginning ballet and are ready to commit to more formal training focusing on a strong technical foundation. A complete technique class with barre, center, and across the floor movement. Choreography will be filmed and screened at the end of semester showcase. Prerequisite: Ballet I or by audition.
