Fine Arts

The arts are an essential element of learning. High quality arts opportunities foster a creative life through engaging students in art making and encountering art and artists. The arts disciplines of Art, Dance, Drama, Music and the Literary Arts offer students many unique opportunities. Engaging in artistic practices supports student success across subjects. Through the arts, students learn the skills to explore ideas, create, innovate, express themselves, solve complex problems and practice perseverance.

From kindergarten to grade 12, the arts offer students opportunities to discover their passions, come to know who they are as people, and express their thinking and learning. Beyond acquiring important knowledge, skills and techniques in each arts discipline, creative learning opportunities challenge students to think in new ways and explore new ideas.

Everyday fine arts programs offer students opportunities to become actors, artists, dancers, musicians, and performers. Students thrive in environments where they can engage in these artistic practices.

In the Fine Arts students are provided with opportunities to develop the competencies required of engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.
