On occasion, special arrangements may be made to travel to schools outside of the Cincinnati area.

Rick teaches the entire student body during their individual art classes. He uses clay and a potter's wheel to integrate multiple curricula.

All students also participate by making a distinctive tile which the artist later uses to create a mosaic for the school.
