At this level, students will have the opportunity to discover and develop a unique skill and passion that can be applied cross curricularly in their years at Fairview, as well as throughout their lives beyond the classroom.

America invests greatly in the arts making it an ideal career choice for the future. The creative economy generates 50% of the income in our society. Many creative occupations are expected to grow 30 – 45% over the next 10 years. Don’t get left behind, enroll in a visual art class! The visual arts involve students intellectually, personally, physically, and emotionally. When students are engaged and involved in the educational process they learn! Art allows students to express their unique visions of the world, enabling students to deal with divergent outcomes and opportunities to reflect upon the differences among people. In this department, we value students who are already creative as well as those who are unaware of their ability to communicate with their artistic side. As instructors we teach how to compose, so the freedom to express ideas becomes a concrete reality for each individual.
