Innovative Arts- Mr. Johnson

What is Innovative Arts

Innovative Arts replaced the Middle School Technology course in 2018. The goal of the class is for students to become innovative creators. Starting in 5th grade, students use technology to learn how CNC machines, laser cutters, 3D printers, and vinyl cutters can be used to be creative!
