Creating in Wood
Using very safe and basic tools, children will be guided as they learn how to explore the elements of creating in wood as a media. Projects and instruction keep pace with students’ skill development and growth. Students who have already taken woodworking are encouraged to further develop their skills with tools, design, and project implementation.
