Our youngest students (ages 6 to 8 years) follow this schedule very loosely. It is
important that works not take too long to complete and that students are always trying
something different. For instance their classes may cover 1 or 2 activities while
an older student may work on a drawing for several weeks.
Students and parents may find that the schedule may vary slightly according the age,
ability and interests of the students involved. Also, timelines may vary slightly
as some students may work quickly and some prefer to take their time.
All units have the ability for more advanced students to build upon previously taught
skills and continue their explorations of the unit.
