The Arts program connects students to humanity through hands-on projects that require inquiry, curiosity, correlation, response, and analysis. The program calls upon both individual and collaborative skill sets. We teach and guide students through creative processes to think critically, connect to and create story, to identify and participate in human commonalities, as well as to make sense of and express their understanding of the world.
