Overview


Finding your creative voice.
 
Exploring the visual and performing arts is a vital component of a liberal arts education.
Our Fine Arts Program presents a creative environment with hands-on opportunities for students to express themselves. At the heart of it all is our talented faculty. Sought after for their passion, our Fine Arts teachers maintain active artistic lives and often bring their real-world experience into the classroom. They believe the study and expression of the arts is life-changing, life-affirming and life-sustaining.
 
SCOPE & SEQUENCE of the Fine Arts Curriculum
