Art Experience

5th -12th grades

The Rock Academy loves giving students a creative outlet and our Art Teacher, Sydney Phillips is the teacher to help them take their love of art to the next level!  She has a passion and talent for art in many forms and is excited to share this year with the students at TRA.

During this course, students will participate in professional art skills in a variety of areas.  Students will be encouraged to explore different techniques while creating their own unique art projects. Increasing self-expression, engaging the visual area of the brain and improving the overall capacity for learning, students will be taught in a workshop format.  We will be studying in the main areas of:

  • Drawing

  • Painting

  • Crafting

  • Drafting

  • Sculpting

  • Comics

  • Videography
