All scholars study and practice the visual arts as a core subject in grades 6-8. At full capacity, this may include courses in art history/appreciation plus electives in drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry design, computer graphics, and photography. CCMS's curriculum allows students to pursue more advanced studies in art in their high school years.
