Fine Arts


Offerings in art and music allow students creativity through self-expression.

The offerings in music are designed to develop the student’s awareness of the aesthetics of music as the artistic expression of thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
The primary focus of the visual arts classes is studio production in order to develop student creativity through self-expression.
