By the time your student has reached eighth grade, it is likely that they will have been in my art room for at least a few of their previous grade levels. I am always interested and very proud to see their development over that time period. Waterfront students are truly special and are a talented bunch! If your child wants to study art in high school, the skills they have developed over their time at Waterfront will benefit them greatly. And even if they don't continue formal art training, by this time they will have developed skills that will allow them to express themselves over their entire lifetime.
