- Arts Academy in the Woods is an awesome high school. I loved the three years I spent there, and I’ll never forget them. It’s a high school where you can choose a major and minor in the arts. Options include: guitar, instrumental, band, vocal(several different kinds), theatre, multimedia, 2d art, 3d art, drama, and dance. I attended Arts Academy in the woods starting my sophmore year, and graduated in 2008.
I majored in
Multimedia, where Mrs. Mantey (http://www. artsacademy-woods. org/staff/Mantey.
htm) taught me how to use photoshop like a pro, make basic animations with flash, create websites using dreamweaver, with html/css. For my minor I took 2d art, where Mr. Jacobi (http://www. artsacademy-woods.
org/staff/jacobi. htm) and Mrs. Huntoon help me become a better drawer and painter, a better artist. I also took a Guitar class with Nathan Montgomery, check him out http://www.
artsacademy-woods. org/staff/Montgomery. htm. He always wanted us to just call him Nate, and not ...
Montgomery. He was an awesome guitar teacher, but he is leaving AAW in order to further pursue his career as a musician, and to spend more time with his family. I also took 3d art with Mrs. Huntoon, where I learned how to make and paint ceramic tiles, mugs, pots, and such.
My senior year I also took Advance Creative Writing with Mr. c or Mr. Cerasco (http://www. artsacademy-woods.
org/staff/cerrasco. htm). I loved the creative writing class, and Mr. C is awesome.
The great thing about Arts Academy in the Woods is that people seem to accept everyone for who they are. You could be bisexual, straight, homosexual, a cross dresser, emo, gothic, scene, completely eccentric, some one who wears a different holloween costume everyday, or just off right freaky, and you would still be accepted and encouraged to be yourself. It is a place where creativity, individuality, and artistic freedom is embraced.
