Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA)


Dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts convey knowledge and meaning not learned through the study of other subjects. Study through the arts employs a form of thinking and a way of knowing based on human judgment, invention, and imagination.

Arts education offers students the opportunity to envision, set goals, determine a method to reach a goal and try it out, identify alternatives, evaluate, revise, solve problems, imagine, work collaboratively, and apply self-discipline. As they study and create in the arts, students use the potential of the human mind to its full and unique capacity. The visual and performing arts are a vital part of a well-rounded educational program for all students.
