New High School Workshops
High School Students: Mountain Oaks is offering two new elective classes for the Spring Semester. The first is a Film/Art History and Appreciation class and the second is a Creative Writing Class. A-G/College Prep credits may be available for students who participate in either workshop. Film/Art History and Appreciation (Thursdays, 12:30-2:00P) is an overview of film as a form of historical documentation and current communication with emphasis upon exploring different cultures and how they express their values through film. The workshop will also touch on other forms of media such as famous paintings, sculpture, glassware and the portrayal of history through art. Creative Writing (Thursdays, 10:30A-12N) will focus on different writing techniques, styles, and the use of imagination in creating works of fiction. Workshops start Thursday, January 18th in Canyon Oak. Either workshop should meet the Fine Arts requirement for graduation. Junior High students may attend with prior approval of the instructor.
