Arts Community Pillars
Music Appreciation: By learning how and for what to listen, students gain an appreciation for different types and genres of music and musical instruments. Rooted deep in history, music is in an inherent and valuable component of our society and our world.
Dance Appreciation: Dance is an art form. Its historical, social, and cultural elements enables students to learn and practically apply this knowledge to the physical world.
Theater + Film Appreciation: Many components of acting and production are valuable and prevalent today. Exposure to vocabulary, processes, and techniques centered on theater and film enables students to develop critical thinking skills that are applicable to the field.
Art + Literature Appreciation: Purpose, innovation, and stimulation equally play a role in the origination of ideas. As students’ knowledge of genres and historical traditions develops, the messages conveyed through literary and art creations become more apparent and meaningful.
