Arts / Overview

At Kirby we consider the Arts an equal partner within the academic curriculum.

Our Program

We believe that creative expression is fundamental to the human experience, and that work in the arts enhances learning in other areas.

A rich variety of Arts Division offerings are taught by accomplished artists and provide extensive opportunities for student involvement in music, the visual arts, theater and dance. Music theory is complemented by many performing groups and classes including chorus, jazz choir, chamber choir, jazz ensemble and orchestra and performers record in the school’s recording studio with the assistance of the audio engineering class. Performing arts includes drama techniques, methods and theater labs, two dramatic productions each year and dance. Visual arts includes painting, sculpture, photography and book arts. New facility enhancements include middle and high school art studios, a recording studio and audio engineering lab, kiln, darkroom, and a printing press for making books.

The high school Arts Intensive Path (AIP) is a specialized program available to students who wish to pursue university and professional careers in visual or performing arts.
