What is Theater Arts?
The fine arts incorporate the study of dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts to offer unique experiences and empower students to explore realities, relationships, and ideas. These disciplines engage and motivate all students through active learning, critical thinking, and innovative problem solving.
“While Theatre Arts is a performing art, it is also unquestionably a visual art as well. From stage set to lighting to costuming to creating appropriate mannerisms, facial expressions, and posturing, Theatre Arts requires expertise in constructing the visual to create believable characters and environments for performance … the mise en scène.” - Shannon South, Fall 2019
