    Important Information about Attendance in Credit Classes:
     
    Absences & Tardies
    For Upper School credit courses students must plan to attend all sessions of class.
     
    We understand that illness can happen in the summer. For classes that meet for five-weeks, a student may miss a maximum of three class sessions. For classes that meet less than five-weeks, a student may only miss two class sessions. Two tardies to the same class may count as one absence.
     
    When absent or late to class, students are still responsible for completing all assigned work. Students must complete all course requirements to receive Upper School academic credit. Additional absences will lower a student’s grade in the class and or may preclude the awarding of any credit.
     
    Academic Credit
    An Academic Credit Form is not required for Crossroads students.
     
    In order to have grades and transcripts sent to a student’s home school, an Academic Credit Form is required for all non-Crossroads students.
     
    Students taking this class should be prepared for the intense pace of the course. One day of class in the summer program is considered to be equal to a week of classes during the school year. Students should also be prepared for two to three hours of homework each night. The school library is open daily until 5:00pm should a student choose to stay on campus to complete their work. It is recommended that students do not take other classes, work, or take on internships during the five weeks of the summer program.

    As global citizens, we have a responsibility to create better health outcomes in our world.  In this course, students learn the scientific facts regarding human health and global sustainability through an exploration of the biotic and abiotic causes and mechanisms of human disease and environmental degradation. This includes communicable and non-communicable diseases, ecosystem health and viability, child and adolescent health problems, mental health, reproductive health and rights, and health issues within refugee and displaced populations. By analyzing trends in data from the World Health Organization (WHO) and other global agencies, students evaluate both the victories and shortfalls in humanity’s response to various pandemics (special case study on COVID-19). Students examine how differences in perceptions within developed, emerging, and developing countries affect national health and environmental policies. Taught within the context of global equity and social justice, the course draws connections between human health, global sustainability, and economic disparity. Hence access to health care, education, family planning, clean air, potable water, sanitation, food, and land use are important topics of study. The course is taught using a seminar approach designed to support student driven research. A final capstone project conducted by students will culminate our journey, developing a carbon footprint conscious tasty meal for planetary health and your health.

    In this class, students become familiar with the basic techniques and concepts necessary to working within the ceramic medium. Each project highlights specific technical approaches: coil building, slab construction, modeling/relief-carving, and mold-making. In addition, each project emphasizes design concepts and personal expression. There is an emphasis on creating forms using the potter’s wheel once students have learned the basics of hand building.

Each student is required to participate in class critiques and to maintain a sketchbook for homework assignments pertaining to each project.

    Students continue to improve the basic skills acquired in Ceramics 1 while developing more ambitious projects. These include extensive hand-building, wheel-throwing, and advanced mold-making. Students are challenged to further develop their personal expression in this medium. Each student is required to participate in class critiques and to maintain a folder for homework assignments pertaining to each project.

    Important Information about Attendance in Credit Classes:
     
    Absences & Tardies
    For Upper School credit courses students must plan to attend all sessions of class.

    When absent or late to class, students are still responsible for completing all assigned work. Students must complete all course requirements to receive Upper School academic credit. Additional absences will lower a student’s grade in the class and or may preclude the awarding of any credit.

  • Film Photography and Darkroom Studies, grades 6-8 [CANCELED]

    All sections of this class have been CANCELED. 

    This course is going to take students back to a time before phones and digital cameras, where the world of photography was dominated by film. We’ll start at the basics of how film cameras are different than the digital cameras that most students are used to, and start practicing the art of how to take pictures without seeing immediate results. After we learn how to take pictures with this technique, we’ll head into the darkroom to learn the skills to develop our own film every step of the way- from unloading your film from your camera, to mixing the right chemicals for each stage of the developing process.  No experience or camera equipment is needed to sign up for this course.

  • Visual Arts and Ceramics; Out in the Ocean, ONE-WEEK, grades 2-5 [CANCELED]

    This popular class has now been extended to a two-week, all-day program to provide those children who have an interest in the visual arts the opportunity to develop skills in ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography.

Students have the opportunity to express their inner creative voice while learning techniques.
     
    One of the main artistic emphasis of this class is ceramics. Students build 3d ceramic forms. While learning how to make their pieces appear realistic, they carve and glaze their fired pieces.
     
    Visual Arts and Ceramics sessions are integrated with a theme and include individual and group projects that support learning and connections between the students. Three two-week sessions are available. The dates of the two-week offerings cannot be split up or changed.

  • Visual Effects Through Cinema History, grades 6-8 [CANCELED]

    This class has been CANCELED. 

    Students find humor and amazement in discussing the evolution of practical visual effects through cinema history. After Georges Méliès’s landmark A Trip to the Moon (1902) launches discussions into Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954), The Dark Crystal (1982) and Gremlins (1984), students learn about and discuss the suspension of disbelief and the filmmaking techniques that compel it.
     
    But that’s just to get started; in tandem with the viewings, students conceive of and build their own creatures, make-up effects, props, puppets or any number of tangible artifacts. In stepping away from their laptops and devices, students enter a world of possibility and explore the hands-on use of craft supplies, paints, liquid latex, sculpture compounds, miniatures, scale-models and, most of all, pure imagination. In this fast-paced, course, students engage in the design process from start to finish, and hone their reasoning, planning, and problem-solving skills to engineer their own piece of movie magic.
     
    This course is recommended for students interested in film, sculpture, fashion & design, architecture, and visual arts & crafts.
     
    Additional class discussions may surround excerpts from Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Little Shop of Horrors, King Kong, Jurassic Park, E.T. and The Forbidden Planet.
