Our Fine and Performing Arts program, with a strong emphasis on team building and self reflection, ignites a student’s interest in learning through
collaboration, while simultaneously fostering creativity, critical thinking and communication. While students may not pursue a degree or career in the Arts, the transferable skills and knowledge are relevant to a wide variety of careers that have similar knowledge bases and practices such as architecture, construction, law, engineering, science, people management, project management, education, graphic design, computer drafting, computer programming, and robotics.
Fine arts courses include topics such as band, drama, drawing, design, film study, stage management, and stagecraft. Students can also qualify for Tri-M for Music and Thespian Honor Society for Theater as well as pursue their passion in Art Club, Jazz Band, Griffin Theatre, and Pep Band.
Vianney has dedicated 2,400-square foot rooms for the fine art and band programs along with a patio area for students to work on outdoor projects. The music space models college rehearsal rooms, with acoustically-minded floors, walls, and ceiling. There are two small and one large soundproof practice rooms so students can split into sectionals. There is also a state-of-the-art recording equipment, speakers, and instrument lockers. The fine arts space includes a large studio area, a separate room for a kiln, and a room for pottery wheels. Students can explore courses in drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking and sculpture. College-credit courses and independent study are available for students who wish to explore a deeper level of artistic skill and technique.
