The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic...music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.- WILLIAM BENNETT
To us, imagination and creativity are every bit as important to a good education as a challenging curriculum. At Signature Preparatory, we’ve taken great care to ensure our students have access to the fine arts.
From observation to analysis to creation, students at Signature Prep are treated to a creative journey through the world of visual arts. Our art classes help budding artists discover and develop their artistic side and learn to appreciate the world of visual art.
Music is a vital part of a well-rounded education, helping children with language development, spatial skills, academic performance, creativity, and so much more. Music classes at Signature Prep give students the opportunity to listen, learn, and grow to love the deep and beautiful world of music.
At Signature Prep, we’re pleased to offer art and music classes for all students at every grade level. We integrate fine arts into our everyday instruction, allowing for interconnected learning and deeper understanding.
The importance of the arts in education has long been a topic for research and study. One research project indicated that a substantial increase in fine arts education was tied to positive academic, social, and emotional outcomes. The same research showed that students who received a fine arts education were less likely to be disciplined at school, improved their performance on standardized writing tests, and had increased compassion for others.
Fine arts can also help students build self-esteem, motivation, and creativity, while also providing cultural exposure and more engaging learning.
