SAT scores came out today from the March test (the first of the redesigned SAT). Of course, juniors got a glimpse of what the new test would be like in October, when they took the redesigned PSAT.

Gilman School offers an exciting range of enrichment and skill-building experiences for girls and boys in grades 1 through 12 on its North Baltimore campus. Last summer, 370 kids from 57 different schools attended Gilman Summer programs, which range from one to six weeks in length.

Campers can enroll in more than 40 different offerings including outdoor education, 3-D video game and mobile app development, baseball statistics, SAT prep courses, college application and essay writing, and art enrichment programs. Courses are designed and taught by Gilman School faculty and field experts.

“The most important thing is that kids have fun while they are learning something new and being challenged in their abilities,” said Maryann Wegloski, director of Gilman Summer. “Academic courses give students a boost before their next school year, while some of our other programs are designed to let our campers explore their personal and creative interests.”

Among the courses taught by Gilman’s award-winning art instructor David Anderson is Surf and Skate Art – back for its third year by popular demand – in which students examine the unique design elements of surf and skate culture. A skater himself for the past 30 years, Anderson shares his passion and knowledge as students design a series of skateboard graphics, create ocean paintings on canvas, and more.

Anderson also offers half-day sessions in clay modeling, storytelling through art, studio drawing workshops, and painting with pastels and acrylics.

During the summer classes, kids are able to build their portfolios of work and expand their technique. Anderson says the real advantage to summer art programs is the length of time the kids get to spend on each project – time they don’t often have during a typical school day.DSCN4939

“We have a huge range of artists every summer – both in age and ability,” said Anderson. “The dynamic of how they learn from each other and encourage each other is always really inspiring to watch.”
