    My daughter loves FLVS and you all do a fantastic job! My daughter is going into 11th grade and would love to see visual and graphic art electives for her level too.


      Hi Pam – We’re so glad to hear! Although we do not currently offer Visual Art 1 or 2 for students in grades 9-12, she may enjoy one of our other creative high school courses: Creative Photography 1, Art History & Criticism 1, or AP Art History

    2. Gretchen

      I agree. For our very artistic daughter, it would be great to have a digital media or graphic design class to further develop her art skills and understanding of industry programs.
