Welcome to the SCJH Family !
SCJH is a School of Choice-a public charter school with a small family like atmosphere. We have caring, dedicated teachers who go the extra mile to educate their students ! I am very pleased to offer a new class this year, an Exploratory Spanish class for 6th and 7th graders. I will also be teaching my High School level Spanish I class as well as my Art classes. This is going to be a great year and again, welcome to our family !

The Art Program at SCJH encompasses the Elements and Principles of Art, such as; Line, Shape, Texture, Color, Balance, Form and Value, to name a few. These elements & principles are then explored through a variety of hands-on projects. Students learn through practicing with various media in the classroom; Paint, Marker, Pencil, Charcoal, Pastel, Clay, Paper, Fabric/Fiber, Recycled and Found Objects. Color Theory and Introductory Art History are explored, students learn about well-known artists and their contributions to the art world. Each year students have the opportunity to participate in the Vero Beach Museum of Art Children's Art Show, which is a dynamic event ! SCJH has had winners over the past two years ! Students also will be involved in our own in house art show, dates to be posted. We also have Art Club which is offered once a week after school.
