Art.

In the Fine Arts Program, students are involved in a variety of presentations: school and community displays of their art work, a major theatre production in the spring, and performances by various music groups at events and schools.  Art instruction provides the student with the opportunity to experience varied mediums in a classroom climate that promotes creative thinking and personal style development. Portfolio development is a consideration at all levels, progressing in importance as the student continues through the program.
