The Fine and Performing Arts Department which includes art, drama and vocal music offers courses as well as clubs, organizations, plays and several choirs to consider. We are committed to nurturing the artistic talent of students who choose to take a course or participate in the many extra curricular choices we have to offer.
The Art Department fosters an appreciation and an awareness of the beauty that surrounds us in the world. Students are instructed in the skills and disciplines necessary to create a fine work of art. Those students who wish to enter the art field as a career are also given a very practical approach in their accumulation of work for the purpose of obtaining a job or gaining entry into college. The Art Department inspires students to become aware of their hidden potential and gifts, challenges their creativity, and encourages them to convey their feelings and thoughts through the visual media.
Drama classes provide opportunities to improve communication, problem solving, creative and analytical skills. By creating, performing, analyzing, and critiquing dramatic performances, students will build confidence and develop a deeper understanding and acceptance of personal issues and a broader understanding and appreciation of life around them as reflected in the realm of theatre.
The primary goal of the Marian Music Department is to foster a life-long appreciation and enjoyment of music. By offering non-performance based classes that focus on music history, music creation, and music sharing, as well as choral ensembles that perform a variety of musical styles throughout the year, all students have the ability to experience and express themselves through music.
