Fine arts is an important entity in contemporary society. The fine arts program is vital so that students from kindergarten through eighth grade can understand this important facet of their world. It will provide students with the opportunity to deepen their awareness of God’s gift of creating and to respond creatively to the beauty and goodness of the world. Through music, art, and the movement experiences, values and needs of individuals are revealed and savored.
Instruction in the arts contributes to the development of the whole person; promotes individual expression; allows experimentation with diverse materials and elements; enables exploration and appreciation of the works of other students and major artists; develops an awareness and sensitivity toward the environment; and finally promotes a deeper understanding of heritage and culture.
The fine arts curriculum provides a holistic approach to education, which incorporates many aspects of the core curriculum and can be integrated into the total educational experience.
