Algebra 1 8th-12th Grade
Instructor: Justin Soto
$22.00/week 2 50 min class sessions


This is a two semester course but students are welcome to add at any time.

We will be using Key to Algebra (click link to learn more).  Students will need to purchase the 10 workbooklets and may want the 3 solutions booklets but they are not required.

In the Key to Algebra series, new algebra concepts are explained in simple language, and examples are easy to follow. Word problems relate algebra to familiar situations, helping students understand abstract concepts. Students develop understanding by solving equations and inequalities intuitively before formal solutions are introduced.

Students begin their study of algebra in Books 1–4 using only integers
Books 5-7 introduce rational numbers and expressions.
Books 8-10 extend coverage to the real number system.

This Algebra 1 course is not as rigorous as some.  Students who plan to pursue math or science may want to supplement with additional material.

Art TK, K, 2nd;  
Instructors: Summer Jessee (K, 1st); Alyssa Millen (TK, 2)
$12.50/week 50 minutes

 
This year the Early Elementary Art classes will be exploring art appreciation.  This will be done by introducing the Great Artist, talking about their lives, looking at their work, and discussing the artist's methods and techniques.  Afterward, this information will be implemented into art work by the student.

Art is a wonderful way to increase critical thinking.  We will follow the "seeing, thinking, questioning" model.  At first students will learn to observe and describe what they are seeing.  From there we will move on to more complex descriptions and questions - e.g. "Why might the artist have used the colors he did?"  For more information on art and critical thinking please see http://www.pz.harvard.edu/resources/thinking-routines/thinking-routines-artful-thinking
 
In elementary art, half of the fun and learning is in trying new things, using new materials and finding new and innovative ways to use materials.  We will be exploring the standard pencils, makers and paint, but will also branch out into clay, paper mache, and many more exciting, tactile materials and processes.  The children will get messy - please plan accordingly!
 
Art 3rd-5th; 6th-8th; 9th-12th
Instructor: Ann Baum
$12.50/week 50 minutes


From Mrs. Baum: 
An Artistic Opportunity


NHA provides an environment for students to explore their creativity. The importance of any creative endeavor is the opportunity to discover your creative gifts. People throughout history have used pictures, music, dance and storytelling as tools to communicate the events in their lives. Today we use these arts to tell the people around us how we feel. Music and dance are physical and social releases. Poetry can express our reactions to the world; writing can communicate our hopes. Drawing, painting, and sculpture are ways to embellish our lives, all while giving us time to reflect our thoughts in a positive, creative way.

Creative play: a way to explore art in an environment free of instructional restrictions, I have attempted to create a climate of learning in which all students feel confident and successful while inspiring them to find their creative voice. I have used creative play for the past three years at NHA. It has been a wonderful way to observe students interacting with a variety of art materials, and each other, without criticism. I find that showing examples before the lesson is not productive and can inhibit students. However, after the lesson I do reveal works by famous artists as a way to surprise students with their success.

Students in the third to eighth grade can expect a weekly challenge with a ‘word of the day’ as inspiration and a variety of art supplies to stimulate their curiosity. At the end of each class I encourage a critique, where we discuss the outcome of our efforts. This is a positive way to encourage each other and understand that art can be expressed in endless creative ways.
High school students can expect to be creatively challenged to explore a historic art style or a particular artist; studying, and then creating a final piece to be publicly displayed. This is a classic way for high school art students to immerse themselves in art that interests them and to demonstrate and display their talents.  

As always, it is important as artists to learn how to use, care for, and appreciate the art supplies and the space we work in, as well as respecting the artists around us.
 

My thanks to Tiffany for providing the time, place, materials and teaching freedom, allowing students an opportunity to reach their creative potential.
