Music & Visual Arts
The Music and Visual Arts programs develop, support and challenge all students regardless of their incoming abilities. The skills that build successful musicians and artists are absolutely the same skills needed in any college and career: creativity, critical thinking, presentation, adaptability, risk-taking, craftsmanship, self-reflection and cultural awareness. We offer a rigorous classroom experience that promotes these ideals through actively painting, sculpting, designing, photographing, performing, composing and recording. We provide students with an amazing number of exhibits, concerts, recitals, workshops and collaborative opportunities in our many partnerships with professional art and music organizations.
The 21st century world needs citizens who not only work with current technological and societal issues but who also IMAGINE new worlds, ideas, objects and sounds.
