The Academy at Charlemont has a wide range of studio block classes including Italian, Funk Band, and Ceramics. Italian is taught by an exchange student named Bea. For her senior project she is researching different methods of teaching language classes. The class has learned vocabulary for family, food, colors, and days/months. It is Bea’s plan to teach them enough to have phone conversations with  her friends in Italy. Funk Band, taught by Mr. Weeks,  is a class open to kids of all still level and instrument type. The class is currently made up of 6 students playing 3 songs. Instruments being played include drums, guitar, bass, piano, and saxophone. Ceramics is a double block class taught every tuesday by Cristy Knox. Projects are usually wheel-thrown, hand-built, or drape molds. The class is also experimenting with new glazes, and project forms. These are only a few of the classes offered at the Academy, there are many other opportunities to explore their artistic interests.
