All Kinds of News for January 10, 2018
The arts are an integral part of the Summit Prep Curriculum. Summit provides students with many creative outlets for self-expression through classes and clubs. The Fine Arts program has always offered an array of classes from Beginning Drawing to Advanced Art Portfolio. It is so amazing to see the beautiful pieces of art that the students create. In addition to Fine Arts, Summit Prep’s Practical Arts program has grown and now provides several courses to encourage students to learn about home improvement, landscaping, construction.
As the arts offerings have expanded, so has the need for additional space. The dream of a new building is now becoming a reality. This opportunity is due to the support of Alumni families and friends. This spring, once the ground thaws, construction will begin. Projected completion is July 2018.
The expanded 2000 square foot space will be used for both the Fine and Practical Arts classes. The design will feature a large, garage type door offering students the opportunity to work on many of their projects in the beautiful Montana "outdoors". The current art room will house our music and theatre arts programs. This expansion is such an exciting opportunity for Summit Prep students. A special thanks to all those who have helped make this a reality.
