We proudly partner with Stephanie Shelton for musical instruction and performance in 1st-12th grades. Stephanie has taught music at RECA for several years under AIMA. Now on her own, we continue to use her musical expertise in our enrichment class and band. Elementary students meet once per week after school. Younger students begin with keyboarding, while older students have band. Our middle and high school band class meets weekly after school. We typically have one or two MS/HS band concerts each year along with appearances in our yearly talent show.

Elementary Art


Our Art Enrichment class is offered once each week after school. Open to 1st-5th grade, students learn basics of theory and practice multiple techniques. "Our art instructors, Britton Sharp and April Wireman, bring a wealth of expertise across different mediums. Students will explore a range of art materials, such as pencil, charcoal, colored pencils, and watercolor paint. This class is perfect for budding artists! 

Art Class

Student artists may enroll in Art Class as an elective credit course during 5th and 6th period. These talented students work hard to hone and sharpen their skills across multiple techniques and mediums. Led by their art teachers, Christy Allison (MS) and Katelyn Hutchins (HS), students complete multiple projects throughout the year.
