Newton Classical Academy is offering music and art classes to anybody who would like to enroll. Interested? Here's how it works:
Classes will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. every other Friday for the duration of the semester. (See our academic calendar for dates.)
9:00–10:00: K–2nd Music / 3rd–6th Art
10:00–11:00: 3rd–6th Music / K–2nd Art
The cost for the class bundle (both art and music) is $100 per child per semester. (That's like buying two lattes a week!) If you're interested in only one or the other, the cost is $60. For NCA families, this cost can be rolled into tuition. Outside students will have to pay in full before the semester begins.

The sign-up deadline for spring 2018 classes is Wednesday, January 17.
Descriptions of the individual classes follow.
Music is taught by our fifth- and sixth-grade teacher, Rose Healy. Rose is taking the reins from the capable hands of our third- and fourth-grade teacher, Laurie Robinson, who put on a wonderful Advent concert in the fall 2017 semester (see the photos below). Singing has always been a major part of Rose’s life. She participated in choir all through her education at Wichita Collegiate, and began studying classical voice in fifth grade. She studied music and theatre arts at the University of Iowa before the Great Books program at the University of Dallas called her name.
The class involves preparation for and performance in an Advent concert in the fall semester and an Easter concert in the spring semester. It also includes music appreciation and even some special musical guests.

Art is taught by Beth Buerge. Beth studied interior design at Kansas State University and has already been doing a fantastic job of teaching art on Fridays at NCA.
