Visual and Performing Arts

    The core intention of Arts education in San Juan Unified School District is to teach all students the essential elements of the visual and performing arts through standards-based classroom instruction, guided practice, and performance. Students learn by example and are encouraged and inspired to develop their imaginations and conceptual thought processes, and to continue learning through communication, discovery, and invention. The Arts also teach concentration, discipline, attention to detail and the pursuit of excellence.
    The desired outcome is a knowledgeable and creative individual who understands and can communicate their craft, with a skill set that includes creative and divergent thinking, design, productive collaboration, teamwork, agility for adaptation and change, and a zeal for learning - in short, an artfully educated and dynamic 21st century learner, appreciator, and producer who values and enjoys the benefits of a fully comprehensive Arts education.
