The Fine Arts department offers students a chance to learn more about themselves through music, theater and the visual arts. Record your own music, learn to draw, paint, sculpt, or design a house, learn to sing in a new language, play an instrument, or create a character on stage.
Field trips are an important part of the curriculum. Students have been to many major museums as well as rehearsals at Lincoln Center. Fine Arts faculty members are professionals in their fields and bring this life experience to the classroom.
Visual Arts courses offer the beginner a place to start and the more experienced student a place to continue to grow. The Edward J. Duffy Family Gallery showcases student art and visiting artists throughout the school year.
Music courses include instrumental and choral groups. Whether you like Jazz, Blues, Rock, or Classical, our curriculum will satisfy your taste in music. The Canterbury Chorale and the Schola Cantorum offer an artistic outlet for vocal students. Students perform in several concerts and recitals throughout the school year. Private lessons are offered as well. The music facility includes a recording studio, music practice rooms, classrooms and the J. Michael Sheehy '56 Choral Classroom.
Whether you consider yourself an athlete, an academic, or an artist, there is a Theater Department course for you or a place in the program. The theater program produces two performances per year in Maguire Auditorium. Students may choose to audition for an acting role or get involved in technical theater. Students in the program can receive course credit for participating in either area.
