Drawing instruction continues throughout the high school years, but we feel that at this point the student has had a decent amount of drawing instruction and should practice what interests them. Drawing doesn’t have to be formal. There are a variety of techniques and methods that the student can play with and which are valid means of expression.

A few ideas are:
