“The arts are fundamental resources
through which the world is viewed, meaning is created, and the mind developed.”
Elliot W Eisner, Professor of Education and Art, Stanford University
Visual and Performing Arts Departments
The SDOC Visual and Performing Arts programs seek to provide all students with the opportunity to build upon their existing artistic and collaborative skills in a supportive, enriching, and inspirational environment.
Students who dedicate themselves to or seek to experiment in the Visual and Performing Arts
are welcomed and encouraged to pursue their interests.
The experience of being part of a performing ensemble working toward a common goal is emphasized through the reinforcement of rehearsal protocol, pride in group accomplishment, and pride in oneself.
