Department Philosophy

The Fine Arts/Performing Arts Department encourages students to develop a positive, creative insight into themselves and the world around them. It also encourages creative and critical thinking skills and the ability to work in a cooperative environment; all components of 21st Century learning skills. By experiencing the technical and aesthetic skills of all the arts, young women, whatever their future professions, learn to appreciate and become enthusiastic participants and supporters of the arts.  All fine arts courses are elective; however, a requirement of one credit in this area is necessary for graduation from Fontbonne Academy.
