Sixth-grade students focus on three-dimensional art: Spanish folk art, sculpture, pottery, tile making, collage, mask making and textile/fabric art. These classes are taught by Oceanna Holton, a local artist born and raised in Santa Fe.
Seventh-grade students are guided by Shelley Robinson towards developing drawing skills and techniques through the exploration of portraiture, figure drawing, still life, light and shadow, perspective and landscape.
Ms. Robinson instructs students in the eighth grade as they move into color in a structured program designed to build skills and foster confidence. Students begin with watercolor, move to pastels and finish with acrylic painting. Each school year culminates with a public showing of each student’s best work in a local gallery in Santa Fe.
This School does an amazing job. I have been teaching there 15 years and seen class after class of girls change into their own womanhood and power. It is the most thoughtful staff and curriculum I have ever encountered.
