The arts are about moving and making, playing and producing, creating and collaborating, and ultimately, learning and loving it.

Dance, Drama, Music, Photography, and Studio Arts allow students to acquire technical skills while exploring themes that interest them. Media Studies encourages students to examine the outputs of mass media in analytical and creative ways. All arts, whether through performance, creation, or analysis, foster critical thinking.

As teachers of the Fine Arts, we strive to provide environments that encourage play; where students can feel confident trying new things as they learn more about themselves and about the world. The arts provide skills that are transferable to all areas of life.

Creativity fosters self-esteem and promotes collaboration… and it requires hard work. But hard work can be fun, and the final product can, in turn, create pride and delight.

We are West, and we create.
