  • Art Foundation begins (In-Person)

    This is a basic foundation class designed to introduce students to art concepts and various types of media and techniques in the planning, design and production of works of art. Students will be introduced to two-dimensional media. Through a series of lectures, demonstrations and exercises, students will be exposed to formal and design elements. The student will be encouraged to start developing a critical eye and an idea of how the creative process works. Sketchbook assignments and critiques will be part of the course. No prerequisite.

  • Ethics in Context begins (Virtual)

    This is a joint religion and service-learning class. The class will examine the foundations of ethics, examine current moral issues facing our Richmond community and work in the community to learn from a hands-on experience of service. Students will examine classical ethical frameworks such as the social contract, utilitarianism, various concepts of justice. This class will examine parts of the racial and socioeconomic history of the city of Richmond as a way to engage current social issues facing the city. 

    The course will be a blend of distance learning and face-to-face service work. The majority of the student work will be distance learning. Students will have synchronous and asynchronous class meetings and assignments. The expectation is that students are available from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
    Note: Due to the nature of the current COVID-19 situation facing our country, the expectations surrounding the service component may shift. If the pandemic does not change, then the teacher will work with students to help them complete their service projects at a later date. If possible, the students will complete their service work in the class schedule. This will meet the Upper School service-learning requirement.

    Dates: June 7 - 25, M-F, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
