Grade 7 and up class
This class will be an independent-study style format within the class setting. Each student's interest and abilities will be assessed and an individual direction will be developed. Students may specialize in an area of interest or choose to cover a wide range of media. Materials cost may be adjusted depending on the media chosen.
