Cherry Court Studios offers art classes tailored for students in grades 6 - 12. Classes are small, and lessons suit the unique developmental needs of students. Our innovative ART CHALLENGE program is designed for the unique developmental needs of middle school, while our upper school program builds outstanding senior portfolios.
Grade 5 and 6
IMAGINE builds self-confidence by showing young artists in grades 5 and 6 dozens of ways to express themselves creatively. Their comfort zone gradually engulfs more subjects and art materials. Soon the idea of drawing right and wrong is replaced with “What are the possibilities?” This is what creative thinking is all about.
Grade 7 - 9
Cherry Court’s ART CHALLENGE for middle school takes kids on a quest to complete 18 exciting Challenges, starting with the simplest and progressing through more and more complex levels of creative problem solving. The prize is a completed million-dollar (perhaps priceless) portfolio. ART CHALLENGE takes advantage of students’ rapidly developing motor skills and abundance of creative energy.
Grades 10 and up
Students use art elements and materials in unique ways that express their personalities, interests and experiences. To meet the educational needs of students in Cherry Court’s growing program, we offer advanced courses for students in grades 10 through 12. These courses are sequentially arranged, and designed to guide students toward advanced art production that reflects individual talents and areas of interest.
