n all of years of teaching the Ryman Arts program has been the biggest differentiator for those students who are serious or even interested in a future in the arts. It not only teaches you the skills and mediums that will prepare you for high school classes including AP Studio, but its teaching in life drawing, and career connections will prepare you for a future college education and career. You will be surrounded with students from all over the area with a similar passion for the arts with many finding close friendships. Over 16 current and past Carter alumni have entered with most graduating from the program and nothing but great memories and positive things to say about their time and energy spent. I could not speak more highly of a program that doesn't just teach the visual arts at a college level but teaches maturity and the value of hard work, and it's completely free!
