Visual and Performing Arts

The Visual and Performing Arts Department goals are aligned with the California State Standards. Students are challenged to work at their highest potential creating, performing and participating in the Arts. Students learn to use materials, techniques and resources related to the Arts, respond and analyze works of art and music and understand the contributions of the Arts in the world. In the Visual and Performing Arts, students study computer, graphic and creative design, portfolio development and are able to express, grow and showcase their talent. Through guest performers, field trips, concerts and presentations, students are exposed to the Arts in our community.
