Our courses are designed around architectural drafting/model making, drawing/painting, and sculpture/ceramics. Students utilize a classroom complete with an art history library and a kiln for sculpting projects.
Students from Briarwood have been nominated, attended, and graduated from the Glassell School of Art’s Advanced Curriculum for Teens Program in Houston.
Music strengthens areas of a student’s brain with learning disabilities by building the auditory, visual/spatial, and motor cortices. These areas relate to issues with speech and language, reading, focusing, attention, and concentration.
Students experience basic acting and technical skills through theater games, exercises, and short classroom performances. The class culminates in a final performance of a short play where students learn about the production process and perform for an invited audience.
Throughout the semester, students work with a variety of performance genres including Ancient Greek Theatre, Commedia Dell’ Arte, Shakespeare, Realism, Theatre of the Absurd, Contemporary American Theatre, and Devising.
The Drama Department presents fall and spring productions each school year. Students in grades nine through twelve audition for parts in productions or to be part of the technical crew, working behind the scenes.
