Fine Arts courses encourage academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity.
Through creativity, self-expression, drawing, reading, speaking, and writing, students build essential life skills such as aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, creativity, improved emotional expression, as well as social harmony, and appreciation of diversity. While these skills are essential to daily life, they are equally essential for us to experience a colorful life within which we build a deeper understanding of the world around us.
