One of the art courses that AAW offers is called Visual Art Studio. Students taking this class are embedded in our regular classes, and work more or less independently. They have to be approved by the art teacher to take this class. These kids are good artists, well-behaved, and highly motivated. Some of them do work similar to what we do in our regular classes, but others do things that we don't do but are of interest to them. Case in point: this student has made a "plushie" from scratch, and has done a beautiful job! She is also working on a complete fur suit (pics to come).
