The Arts at Jackson include: General Music, Visual Arts, Chorus and Musical Theatre.
The goal of the fine arts program is to build a strong foundation of skills using a diverse curriculum designed for enjoyable, active learning, creating, and performing. Through these positive experiences, students will grow up to become more confident and well rounded adults who appreciate the arts and incorporate it into their lives.
Our visual arts program encompasses multiple mediums, including painting, drawing, clay, ceramics, and mixed media, exposing students to a wide variety of artistic expression. Student work is displayed throughout the year. Students are then invited to display a sample of their work in our annual Art Show!
In General Music, students establish a foundation of musicality through active music making such as singing, playing instruments, movement and listening experiences. Music notation is introduced for rhythm and melody patterns. Social development is fostered as children experience the joy of making music individually and as a part of a group. Children deepen their passion for and knowledge of music through exposure to instruments, music vocabulary, and all genres of music.
In music, students learn music theory and appreciation, and history as well as enjoy singing and performing.
Students in third, fourth and fifth grades are invited to audition for our chorus, which performs several times throughout the school year and our fifth graders are invited to audition for our musical theatre production.
