Fine and Performing Arts

Our Mission:

The mission of the Scituate Public Schools Fine Arts Department is built on the premise that all children are inherently artistic and musical.  We provide each student with the opportunity to meaningfully discover and express a creative voice through the visual and performing arts.  Through artistic literacy, the Fine Arts Department promotes self-reflection, social understanding, cultural acceptance and the self-discipline necessary to be fully expressive. Using a variety of methods and materials, our curriculum empowers students to become creators, critics, and lifelong participants in the arts.

Our Goal:

To provide enriching and positive experiences in art and music for all students
