Expressive Arts and Creative Career Paths/SHSM Arts and Culture

Students learn about expressive arts by experiencing the many art forms available to promote creativity. Students will focus on art with personal intention and explore new modalities to further their creativity and inner exploration. They will also gain awareness of careers that incorporate expressive arts to expand their knowledge of post-secondary pathways.
