Creative Arts

The overarching goal of the school's creative arts program (music/dance, visual art) is to help students develop the ability to use skills, media, tools and processes to express themselves in one or more of the creative arts.

The concepts and skills that are applicable to each of the arts are taught through an integrated approach with the classroom subjects. For example, if the students are studying Ancient India in social studies class, in music/dance class they learn the music/dance concepts and acquire music/dance skills through the elements of Indian music and dance. In art class visual works are created. These are examples of the types of experiences Community Prep provides for students. These experiences give students the opportunity to make cross-curricular connections and express themselves creatively in ways they might not have otherwise considered.
