Students need to experience the arts in an environment that fosters trust, comfort, creativity, and encourages a journey of self-discovery. This journey is vitally important to building self-esteem, enabling a student’s ability to let go of inhibitions, and to take risks as they encounter challenges both on and off the stage or in and out of the art studio. Our incredible FJA arts instructors guide our students to comprehend, appreciate, and make educated choices, while applying the creative process to all areas of their lives. Traditionally, at the conclusion of each semester the art department puts on an ‘Evening of the Arts’, displaying the talents of our students. Even though in-person classes were interrupted by Covid-19, the arts continued to bloom from the classroom, into our students’ homes, and beyond. Please take a moment to appreciate the work of our students on these web pages, and help us celebrate the arts!
