Visual & Performing Arts

The Visual and Performing Arts Department believes that the arts are an integral part of education. The department intends to foster each student's artistic, musical or dramatic capabilities in order to allow the student to express his or her creativity. The department also believes that every single person has the ability to expand his or her own talents when given time and encouragement.
