With Ms. Turner’s addition, we will be expanding our Visual Art curriculum, class time and after school enrichments for our students. New offerings will include “Open Studio” for our Middle School where they will have the opportunity for more individualized instruction in addition to their regularly scheduled Art classes. The Art room is going to be a busy place every day at Country Day!
Welcome aboard Ms. Turner!
