With a part-time school schedule, many of our
students pursue extra-curricular interests in the evenings or on
off-days. Some of our students are involved with club sports,
instrumental music, scouting, etc.
Though we do not offer separate art, music, or P.E.
classes during our school day, we incorporate artistic and
kinesthetic activities into other activities within our classrooms.
In addition, AHB's Afternoon Community Classes are available (for
an additional fee) to our students from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. The
classes offered are based on parent request, but generally consist
of art, PE, community outreach, and more! See a few of our
Community Class listings below for details on what AHB students
have enjoyed this school year.
2012-2013 ACC Course Offerings
ACC classes are held from 2:30-3:30 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and
Thursdays by Valerie, Courtney and Anneke
Q1 - Fine Art & Fun!
Join us as we view the world from an artist's perspective!
We will dive into basic fine arts concepts such as line, value,
color theory, proportion, perspective just to name a few. We
will explore and model different techniques used by famous painters
including Botticelli, Rembrant, Monet and Kandinksy.
Q2 - Acting/Drama
What better way to express oneself than by becoming a
performer! We will study basic fundamentals of theater
including performance, improvisation, stage space, costume and
makeup, and lighting and design. At the end of the quarter,
we will perform a short rendition of a student selected or created
Q3 - Music
This stimulating class will help build a foundation in basic
musical principles. We will introduce various instruments for
students to explore, singing technique and we will even create a
choir. The purpose of this class will be to nurture and
enhance each child's potential as a musician.
Q4 - Three-Dimensional
Students will spend the quarter planning, developing and
creating a project in 3-D. Based on the previous 3 topics
explored, we will study and experiment what it means to create a
modeled structure. Whether it is a set design, stage setting
for a musical or a model of a dollhouse, the idea, parts and pieces
will be generated completely by the students. The media used
will include clay, wood, recycled materials, and possibly glass and
metals (Val has a strong background in the latter).
$1000 annual tuition. Payment plans are available.
