In the art and music programs, students become involved as musicians and artists to develop an appreciation for creative expressions. In the visual arts, students in each grade participate in all genres of art as well as studying art history. In music and dramatic arts, students learn to read music and to play an instrument. They learn about famous composers and the times during which they wrote their music. Students gain confidence by performing in their class play on the stage each year.
