Upper School Arts

All Dunn students are encouraged to discover and develop their interests and talents in music, art, dance and drama.

To ensure that each student has an opportunity to explore this aspect of their education, the Fine and Performing Arts Program at Dunn offers students a broad spectrum of artistic experiences and opportunities from saxophone to ceramics to multimedia. Classroom instruction is designed to build intellectual, perceptual, and technical skills through inquiry, observation, problem solving, performance, and analysis. Courses are structured to create a deeper understanding of the visual and performing arts and to develop critical thinking skills. Students may take electives in the arts every year. One year of fine arts, music or visual, is required for graduation.
