Visual & Performing Arts
Overview

The Arts curriculum is designed to enable students to understand and appreciate how a work of art is created and viewed. The curriculum’s design stimulates growth through self-discovery and self-expression. Students’ skills develop through practice and appreciation of techniques. Classes are structured in tandem with students’ needs in subsequent years.
