Literature & Film
We will examine the differences and similarities of the two major art forms. First, we will dwell on the concept of image, how we receive pictures in our brains, whether those images are received in the form of language as printed text or by words and images on a screen or canvas received as sensory information directly through the eye or the ear.
This is an opportunity for students to pursue the credits they need in a Mathematics lab environment. They may choose to utilize this time for their independent coursework with our Mathematics instructor.

Building a Weather Station
We will design, assemble and install a weather station for the school. The station be on the internet so anyone anywhere can observe conditions at the school.
The course will provide topics about general Art ideas such as “landscape” through history: Cave paintings and their meaning and contemporary installation located in public spaces or the concept of landscape in different cultures; balance in Architecture, paintings and sculpture; the development of the concept of drawing and shading in the Western World and the outlining in the Eastern World.
World War II:
This class for social studies credit will examine the second world war. We will start by examining the roots of the war. We will then take a deep dive into the war itself and finally we will explore how the aftermath of the war forever changed the world. We will try to meet outside when weather permits. We will learn about this this topic in many different ways including through reading, writing, discussion, film, and role playing. This is an opportunity to increase your understanding of WWII whether you bring just a little knowledge or whether you consider yourself already highly informed on this topic.
