The Fine Arts Department is dedicated to excellence in music and visual art. The program is designed to find the creative spirit in each individual. Students are encouraged to try a variety of fine arts while at school to enrich their understanding of the elements, principles and expressive qualities of the arts, as well as learn to appreciate the art of others. We teach that the arts enrich the quality of life.
