Systems, structures, resources, and arts partners would all come together to make our middle school where every child has access to sequential arts education.

At the 6th grade level:  All students take at least 4 small 6-9 week workshops in an arts area of choice.  

At the 7th grade level: If they chose to continue they would narrow their focus to 2 artistic disciplines and would spend 1 semester in each discipline

At the 8th grade level: Students would take a year long course in their selected artistic discipline, create a portfolio for applying to the school of the arts, and take part in a graduation arts project for the school community (murals, redesign of spaces, producing a concert or play, etc.)
