Fine & Performing Arts

Acknowledging the vital importance of providing opportunities for developing creativity.

The Fine & Performing Arts Department offers a variety of exciting course options within a discipline-based program. We offer students the opportunity for either initial exploration or in-depth study. The focus of our curriculum is on creative processes and active student engagement, as well as performance, maintaining a very active performance and show calendar. Students are treated as artists, asked to confront the same challenges and questions that all practicing artists meet, and under the guidance of a faculty mentor/teacher to explore those challenges and questions.
