The educators at The Birches Academy of Academics and Art embrace the natural diversity of all learners. The foundation of our core belief is a commitment to teaching and learning while meeting the social, emotional and physical needs of children and young adults. Using an arts integration approach to teaching and learning, our educators teach students how to look closely, listen carefully, respond thoughtfully and work collaboratively. Students are challenged to accept problems, develop and implement solutions and reflect on the results. By focusing on this process, students develop new levels of independence in their own learning.
In addition to the core disciplines—English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies—Birches Academy offers Art, Music, Foreign Language and Physical Education.
We recognize the influence of technology on the ever-changing global society and expose students to both traditional and digital learning environments. Laptops and iPads are readily available to all of our students.

My goal with this website is to give you a week by week view of our focus areas in art. On each class page will be posted images of work being made and final results. There is also a “wish list” page for items and materials the art room is currently in need of. Lastly there is a resource page for the students that will link to our in-class discussions.
Thank you for visiting!
