Art Department

The Art department offers students an exploration of the structural elements of art used when creating two & three-dimensional forms.  Students will learn to translate their two-dimensional skills into three-dimensional forms through the exploration of natural, abstract, and synthetic sculptural forms using material that may include, but are not limited to, clay, plaster, and mixed media for creative expression. These students’ artists develop perceptual, creative, technical, and problem-solving skills in a sculptural context as they design and produce works of art with personal expression.

Dance Department

Dance students are taught traditional and contemporary techniques to help foster their imagination and promote a well-rounded dance education. Our dance program helps students become more aware of themselves as they learn to control their body, become more disciplined in the art of dance, and learn to express themselves through movement. As Martha Graham once said, “Dance is the hidden language of the soul”.

Theatre Department

The main goal of the Theatre Program is to build self-esteem, cultural awareness, cooperative teamwork, and performance skills through participation in classroom scene work, community performances and fully produced theatrical productions.  Students build a portfolio of work as they create characters and bring them to life on stage. Students start with a basic definition for acting: Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances. From there they build characters from the ground up using their own experiences and emotions to create reality on stage

Stagecraft provides the student with the opportunity to experience, understand, analyze and create all aspects of technical theatre production. Particular emphasis will be placed on developing skills needed by crew members in play production. This class will take students from script analysis, through research, conceptualization, planning, and technical production techniques. Areas specifically covered will include scenic design and construction, stage lighting, sound design, property building, stage make-up, costuming and public relations.
