Fine Arts


"Art is humanity's most essential universal language. It is not a frill, but a necessary part of communication.  The quality of civilization can be measured through its music, dance, drama, architecture, visual art and literature. We must give our children knowledge and understanding of civilization's most profound works."

-- Ernest Boyer
