Student success and growth requires consistency, time and effort.

Students may choose to remain in the program for more than one year.

School Year Bi-Monthly Saturday Sessions:  Continued instruction in visual arts skills and techniques two Saturdays a month, with a focus on portfolio development; field trips, guest speakers and an informal student showcase.
