We’ll be exploring the wide world of Jewelry making! In this class, students will construct jewelry and seek inspiration by looking at examples of artisans work from both here and around the world. Students will be exposed to a variety of basic techniques possibly including wire-wrapping, polymer clay sculpting, Utee enameling, beading, and more! (The exact projects will depend somewhat on student interest.) Regardless of the project, students will use techniques to further their artistic expression and create small piece or pieces that they can take home. Class earns 1/4 credit at Pacem School. Cost $450. (If students are interested in expensive materials, there may be a small materials fee as well.) Open to students ages 10-18.
Tuesdays and Fridays 9:05 – 10:05 January 7 – June 5
Delve into the mysteries of ancient history! This class will travel back in time to several ancient cultures from around the world.

If you’ve ever wondered what the ancient Egyptians ate for breakfast or how the Mesopotamians measured time, this class is for you. Open to students ages 10-14. Cost $550
Computer Graphics and Programming:
Thursdays 8:30 – 12:00 January 9 – June 4
This class covers introductory computer programming with an emphasis on making images on the screen. We will start with scratch and Python to teach software concepts and coding techniques. Students will also have opportunities to learn the basics of widely used free image-creation software such as Inkscape, GIMP and Blender. In addition to creating images, these applications also offer additional opportunities for coding in the form of scripts and custom functions. With Blender and other programs, students will be able to explore the creation of 3-D models, which can ultimately put near-realistic images onscreen, or serve as the basis for 3D-printed objects. Class earns 1/2 credit at Pacem School. Cost $900. Open to students ages 12-18 and younger with permission.
