For Girls Entering into Grades 6th - 12th

Located at our downtown campus at 1435 De La Vina Street. (THE PINK HOUSE)

In addition to studio classes, weekly guest speakers (practicing artists and designers) will share their stories and career paths. Lectures about art and design will familiarize students with design history, cultural icons and design trends. The program will conclude with a final exhibition and celebration of student work open to friends, family and educators.


Photography & Film

Students develop the skills necessary to research, compose, and capture digital photographic projects in a hands-on course. Students are encouraged to be creative, but are also taught to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic, documentary, and/or journalistic intent. They expand their repertoire of techniques with light and shadow as they work with professional lighting and grip hardware, as well as inexpensive and unconventional practical sources of light and shadow. GRSB provides all equipment.
