Fine Arts

The Fine Arts Department offers elective courses in the visual, performing, and graphic arts with the purpose of fostering critical and creative thinking through student exploration and expression. In visual art courses, students utilize a variety of materials to develop artistic abilities in the areas of drawing, painting, and sculpting. In the performing arts, students of all abilities, from beginner to advanced musician, grow their musical talents through individual and group instruction. Students frequently participate in performance events both in and outside of the school environment.
