The Fine Arts Department at Gladewater includes visual arts, general music, and the performing arts of instrumental and choral music, theater, and dance. These subjects are handled in age-appropriate ways in each school division.
The Fine Arts faculty is committed to providing an environment that nurtures personal artistic expression and discovery while providing an excellent program of skill development. Students are prepared for a future involvement in the arts that might range from appreciation to pursuing a professional education in the arts. The arts are seen as an integral part of a Gladewater humanities education giving students the knowledge necessary to understand our culture and those of others. Arts classes require students to develop the ability to think critically, develop divergent thinking skills, make subtle discriminations and evaluations, and synthesize a broad range of material as they grow in their skills within each discipline.
