Visual and Performing Arts in Middle School  

The ASP Arts Program mission is to foster an appreciation, understanding and respect for the visual and performing arts by providing exciting and inspirational opportunities for students to express themselves and find their creative venues. 

This aim is achieved through offering a variety of different creative mediums and forms of expression in which students can thrive regardless of their prior experience and talents. 

The study of the arts is fundamental to an education preparing children for the future by allowing them to experience the creative process first hand, develop a variety of artistic and aesthetic skills, and learn complex forms of problem solving. Through this process students’ outlook on present and past civilizations is broadened, and their self-awareness deepened, preparing them to constructively contribute to our diverse planet.
