Students enrolled in the Fine and Applied Arts Division develop their creative and career potential through a broad range of courses. Classes in the Visual Arts Department, Music Department, and Theatre/Broadcasting Department encourage students to express themselves and to develop those skills that communicate their individual ideas. Classes in the Family and Consumer Sciences Department and the Business Education Department introduce students to a wide range of potential career paths. Fine and Applied Arts classes can be for students who are beginners, who want to explore new fields, or who are quite advanced; courses exist for all interests and levels of accomplishment. Some courses are studio oriented and/or very hands-on, others are rehearsal and performance based, while others are classroom-based explorations. In many instances, courses build on one another; these prerequisites make it easier to develop and improve one’s expression, knowledge, and skills. Please note that some Music and Theatre/Broadcasting courses require attendance and performance at concerts outside of school hours.
